Rabbit Hole

When: March 2-28 2010

If I tell you that Rabbit Hole made me weep, will it make you stay away? If so, I won’t mention it. I’ll only dwell on the brilliant writing and beautifully nuanced performances, because I would not want to discourage anyone from seeing this memorable, moving production.  Of course it’s difficult being on the outside watching people mourn (in this case for the accidental death of a child), but there is so much to be learned, and believe it or not, so much humour, too. Genevieve Steel is pitch-perfect as a mother isolated by her own particular style of grief.  Patricia Zentilli is charming and believable as her attention-seeking sister. Jeff Meadows gives a quietly masterful performance as a father trying desperately to hang onto his memories and marriage. Susan Stackhouse as the coarse but loving grandmother and Drew O’Hara as the awkward and damaged teen round out this terrific cast. Don’t miss this…but bring tissues. –Kate Watson
