Rabbit Hole Directed for the stage by George W. Manus, Jr. runs for two week-ends in July.
Rabbit Hole is a play written by David Lindsay-Abaire. It was the recipient of the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The play deals with the ways family members survive a major loss, and includes comedy as well as drama.
Characters (in order of appearance) Izzy—Becca’s irresponsible but well-wishing sister. Unwed but in a relationship with Auggie. She is pregnant throughout the duration of the play. This creates tension between her and Becca because Becca thinks it’s not fair that Izzy has a child and she doesn’t.
Becca—Howie’s wife in her late thirties. She is usually a very responsible and sensible person, but makes some harsh decisions throughout the play because of grief. Howie accuses her of subconsciously trying to “erase” Danny by selling the house and erasing one of Danny’s baby videos.
Howie—Becca’s husband in his late thirties. Very caring, but has a hard time dealing with Danny’s death, which causes him to be angry and depressed (though he hides it as much as possible)
Nat—Izzy and Becca’s mother. Voice of reason for her daughters. She helps Howie and Becca in the moving process and provides motherly experience to Becca. Her son (Becca’s brother, Arthur) a heroin addict, died of suicide at the age of 30.
Jason Willette—17-year-old boy who accidentally hit Danny with his car, leading to Danny’s death. Lives with his mom; his father’s whereabouts are never revealed but the writing suggests he’s dead. He enjoys science fiction and writes a story about rabbit holes in Danny’s memory
Jeffrey directed by Buddy R. Jones runs for three week-ends in August.
Jeffrey, the title character of Paul Rudnick’s wildly funny new comedy, is a gay man in his mid-30′s who, exhausted from negotiating safe sex, decides to become celibate. It’s not that he hasn’t had his share of adventure. Acclaimed writer Paul Rudnick (I Hate Hamlet, In & Out), crafts this Obie Award-winning romantic comedy that follows the title character, a gay actor and waiter, who’s just given up trying to find love in the treacherous HIV/AIDS landscape of 1990s New York when he meets the man of his dreams. Roles available for many actors of various age, sex and race.
