by David Lindsay-Abaire Maine premiere.
Rabbit Hole, winner of the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for drama, is about a couple dealing with a tragic loss. Set eight months after the incident, Becca and Howie are desperately trying to get their lives back on track. Told with humor and warmth, Rabbit Hole is a stunningly beautiful piece that will touch your heart. Critics raved about the Broadway production of Rabbit Hole. The play was nominated for four 2006 Tony Awards including Best Play. Original leading lady, Cynthia (Sex and the City) Nixon, won the Tony Award for Outstanding Leading Actress in a Play.
From THE PORTLAND PHOENIX
by Megan Grumbling
"David Lindsay-Abaire's alternately harrowing and hilarious drama is powerfully produced by the Good Theater, under the direction of Brian P. Allen."
"Both the script and performances of Poirier and Kimball make the sisters' tension acute and absolutely delectable. They are a total hoot."
"Poirier and Rubin play off each other powerfully."
"Luckily, all this misery is tempered by some exceptionally funny family comedy. Each woman of this family has a very sharp, and very different, comic sense: Becca is rather arch, Izzy brash and take-no-prisoners. And then there's Nat. No-nonsense, simple, outrageous, and insufferable, especially once she's had a few glasses, Mom rambles on in comic-relief tirades that any character actor would die for. What a pleasure for us that she's in the hands of the wonderful Tootie Van Reenen, who's heightened Nat's outrageousness with a smart dead-pan and killer timing."
THE PORTLAND PRESS HERALD
by Steve Feeney
"Harrowing, but with comic relief, it's a very good play and a must-see in this fine Maine premiere production." "A compelling portrayal..." "...first rate..."
