Winner of the 2007 Pulitzer Prize, Rabbit Hole is the story of Becca and Howie, a young couple who have everything a family could want until a life-shattering accident turns their world upside down.  “Painstakingly beautiful and exquisitely human,” this drama blends tragedy and wit into an insightful examination of the very normal lives of a couple who lose their young child and work to survive.

Reviewed as “an evening of side-splitting entertainment and guilty pleasure,” this zany farce brings together a smalltime hustler fighting to save his home/office from demolition, his estranged wife, her new boyfriend (who doesn’t exactly operate on the up-and-up) and a naïve middle-aged oil heiress looking for her long-lost lover.  As one might assume, anything can happen—and does—before everything works out just fine.
