Community Theatre at Woodbury: Not all who fall into the rabbit hole end up in Wonderland like Alice. Becca and Howie in David Lindsay-Abaire’s “Rabbit Hole” are trying to climb their way out of a very deep dark place. They are desperately seeking some type of normalcy in their lives. They have lost their 4-year old son to a tragic car accident and coming to terms with this life altering accident is as hard as it is heart-wrenching.
This play is like a nightmare that parents pray never happens to them. It is not right that children should die before their parents. When it happens, life is never the same. Often marriages split and family relationships are tested. What sets this play apart from so many other dramas is that it is not about the ugliness of the accident, but about how a mother and father try to find a safe place within them. They are trying to survive.
