The Lyon College Harlequin Theatre will present David Lindsay-Abaire’s 2007 Pulitzer Prize award-winning play "Rabbit Hole" next weekend in the Holloway Theatre.
Centered on the tragic death of 4-year-old Danny, the son of Becca Corbett and Howie Corbett, "Rabbit Hole" tackles the tangled web of loss, love and the colossal gamut of touchstones in between.
Karissa Harper, ’17, and Basil Gist, ’17, play Becca and Howie, the devastated parents whose dissimilar process of coping with grief put them at painful odds as they attempt to navigate through the ache of an empty home.
Rounding out the supporting are Kendra Bell, ’19; Madison Oden, ’17; and Julian Francoeur, ’20. Bell plays Becca’s pregnant sister, Izzy, a woman at war with her own demons desperately attempting to forge a familial bond. Oden plays Becca and Izzy’s mother, a woman who has also felt the grief of burying a child. Francoeur plays Jason, the teenager involved in Danny’s death.
The show will run from April 20 to April 22 at 7:30 p.m. and on April 23 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $5 for adults, $3 for senior citizens and non-Lyon students and free for all those with a Lyon ID. Seating is limited.
Lyon is more than just a college. It's a community distinguished by its academic curriculum, unique honor and social systems, and award-winning professors.
