RABBIT HOLE is an entertaining and satisfying play—it might just be the year’s best.” —Show Business Weekly. “A perceptive and poignant study in the day-to-day aches of bereavement: problems with personal intimacy, the uneasy friends who don’t call, the emptiness in a house packed with reminders…Heartbreaking in its theme and details, RABBIT HOLE is a beautifully crafted work of great sensitivity.” —Star-Ledger.
