Theatre Studies Department Presents “Rabbit Hole”
Guilford’s Department of Theatre Studies continues its 2010-11 season with a student performance of David Lindsay-Abaire’s 2007 Pulitzer Prize-winner, “Rabbit Hole.” Performances are February 11-12 and 17-19 at 8 p.m. in Sternberger Auditorium (located in Founders Hall).
“Rabbit Hole” is the heartbreaking and improbably witty story of a family in crisis. Following an unexpected accident, a mother and father find themselves grieving for a tragic and sudden loss. Their different ways of confronting and coping with that loss open old wounds and create new tensions as they make their way back to the light of day.
In addition to the Pulitzer Prize, “Rabbit Hole” received a Tony Award nomination for Best Play. A film version of the play is in current release starting Nicole Kidman, Aaron Eckhart and Dianne Wiest. Kidman’s performance as the mother earned her an Oscar nomination for Best Actress.
Guilford’s production is directed by Professor of Theatre Studies Jack Zerbe.
Tickets are $5 for the general public and $3 for all members of the Guilford College campus community. For more information, call (336) 316-2414, or click here to purchase tickets.
