The Corbetts have everything a family could want, until the day their world is turned upside down.
In the aftermath of a life-shattering accident, a young husband and wife find themselves drifting perilously apart. Rabbit Hole charts their bittersweet search for comfort in the darkest of places...and for a path that will lead them back up into the light of day.

Undoubtedly, the simplicity has been a crucial component in the accolades the play has received. Significant events do happen of course, but Lindsay-Abaire’s presentation is so subtle that the audience does not see the shifts until they have already occurred. This is a play that shows how close comedy and tragedy really are. In many ways, what makes it bearable to watch Becca and Howie work through their grief is the liberal amount of humour Lindsay-Abaire has included in the script. The positive responses that greeted Rabbit Hole often praise it on similar terms: its ability to juxtapose heartfelt emotion with moments of incredible humour.

Rabbit Hole opened on Broadway in 2006 and in 2007 won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
In 2007, film director John Cameron Mitchell announced his plans for a movie adaptation and was released in 2010. The film starred Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart as Becca and Howie.
