As they negotiate a return to their marriage and what is left of their family, they are forced to confront the depth of their loss and the new realities of life together. Winner of the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Rabbit Hole is a surprisingly funny and heart-rending portrait of one family's tragedy and the trials of navigating the unimaginable.

“The Lounge Theatre Has A Family Drama Done Right - In “Rabbit Hole”!”

THE GEEK AUTHORITY - Lorenzo Marchessi

JTK Productions present a wonderful family driven drama called “Rabbit Hole” at the Lounge Theatre in Hollywood. It's the story of heartfelt loss, dealing with family and accepting the past to move forward with life, relationships and knowing what you may need to let go of.

Touchingly written by David Lindsay-Abaire it tells the story of a young family in a suburban home in New York that lost their young son in an accident. Learning the pain that is with the mother and how she is straining her relationship with her husband, sister and mother. Director Eric Hunicutt gave the touch of warmth by making this a very personal and intimate ambiance that only enhances the feeling and pains of everyone on stage.

Jordana Oberman plays Becca who is the mother who suffers this great loss. Although you would think this emotional arch would be easily played, Jordana gives this character the needed anger and frustration that makes her inner kindness and pain shine through in a very subtle way. Her eyes are windows into her heart as she relates her own frustration with herself and her feelings which create quite some powerful emotional scenes with her husband played by Michael. Her relationship with her sister played by Toni is both a hoot and something to learn from as again, Jordana makes this sad situation so powerfully real for the audience.

If you enjoy highly emotional drama coupled with abundant comic relief you will love "Rabbit Hole." The show does grab you and hold you for the entire two hours.

The play, winner of the the coveted Pulitzer Prize for 2007, is a stage work that presents an even blend of humor and temperateness without relying upon one or the other. Within this specific stage product, the cast of five players perform their roles down to a point where one may actually know of an genuine person in so-called “real life” that is depicted on stage. Eric Hunicutt directs this production as intense drama that isn't too heavy, but effortful enough. The creative work of Lilly Bartenstein scenic and lighting design of the Corbett home: A comfortable homestead fit for the postmodern era. along with Serena Duffin costuming adds to the realism depicted.

Directed here by Eric Hunicutt, it is easy to see why Rabbit Hole won a Pulitzer. It is masterfully written and excels at mining ordinary conversations and moments to find deep emotion, all without being overly direct.
