Seeking the Following Roles
Becca – a grieving mother in her 30s or 40s. Tough and uncompromising, she is struggling to get back on her feet after the loss of her son Danny.
Howie – Becca’s husband, 30s or 40s. He is patient and compassionate, but deals with his grief in a very different way than Becca, which creates a fragile dynamic in their relationship.
Izzy – Becca’s younger sister, 20s – 40s, who is irresponsible but well-intentioned. Izzy is pregnant throughout the course of the play, which creates friction with Becca, who believes Izzy is not ready to be a mother.
Nat – Becca and Izzy’s mother who tries to be the support system for her family through the mourning process, but doesn’t always succeed in comforting Becca.
Jason – a teenage boy who accidentally hit Danny with his car. Jason is tormented by guilt, and wants to connect with Becca and Howie to apologize.

About the Show

A beautifully crafted drama that bravely explores the difficult road to healing and how we deal with the unimaginable. Becca and Howie have everything a family could want, until a life shattering accident turns their world upside down and leaves the couple drifting apart from one another. Award winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaire gives the audience a fascinating look at the different ways in which we grieve, and the toll those differences can take. Told with great sensitivity and insight, Rabbit Hole finds hope in the darkest of places. This show will run for two weeks in September on the Grandstreet Main Stage and will be directed by Artistic Director, Jeff Downing. For more information,
