Rabbit Hole is a simple and touching story dealing with the worst of all situations; the loss of a child. But it is not overly morbid or depressing.  It is sad, yes, very sad but it also has humour and, I believe, a sense of hope.  Danny was four when he died, prior to the starting point of the story, and how his mother, father, aunt, grandmother and the young driver of the car deal with their grief and the effects it has on their lives and relationships, forms the story. It is honest, raw at times and very beautiful.
Rabbit Hole is a Pulitzer Prize winning drama with five characters.

Becca – late thirties/early forties.  Danny’s mother.
Howie - late thirties/early forties.  Danny’s father.
Izzy – mid thirties. Becca’s sister.
Nat – mid sixties. Becca’s mother.
Jason – seventeen, driver of the car that hit Danny.

The play is set in contemporary Larchmont, New York. 
If all five actors can do convincing accents, then it will be played with accents. If they can’t, then it will be played in natural voices.
Accents are not necessary for the audition.

The audition will consist of readings from the script, and possibly some improvisation.
Preparation for the audition should consist of reading the script, but not watching the film!

Full commitment to the entire rehearsal period is expected.
Rehearsals will start the week after auditions. Three rehearsals a week (possibly less for Jason) probably Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday but days are to be decided after casting.
There will be no rehearsal on the Sunday of the March long weekend.
Please note, there is a performance scheduled on Anzac Day.
