What happens when a family suffers the tragic loss of a young child? The Main Street Players will be tackling this question in their upcoming production of the 2007 Pulitzer Prize drama, Rabbit Hole, by David Lindsey-Abaire.
This warm-hearted, but poignant play deals with such a loss as Howie and Becca Corbett mourn over the accidental death of their son, Danny. Their world is turned upside down, but rather than reaching towards each other for comfort, they find themselves drifting perilously apart.
Rabbit Hole charts one couple's journey from darkness to light with empathy and great imagination. Despite the serious subject matter that may be difficult for some, it has many funny moments that make the play entertaining for the audience.
Directed by veteran John Olivera with assistant director Andres Hernandez, the play features Lito Becerra, Jennipher Murphy, Marilyn Gresh, Joshua Hernandez, and Brianna Mackey.
Rabbit Hole begins July 26 and runs through August 11 at the Main Street Playhouse, 6766 Main Street in Miami Lakes.
Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. There is one Thursday performance on August 1 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $25 for adults and $18 for seniors (62) and students. Due to subject matter, this play is not recommended for young children.
Tickets can be purchased online at www.mainstreetplayers.com or at the box office, if available. For more information, patrons can look online or call 305-558-3737.
