Becca and Howie Corbett are parents, who have all that a family could wish for, until one day their world is suddenly turned upside down by the death of their young son Danny. Eight months after this life-shattering incident, the young couple find themselves drifting apart.
'Rabbit Hole' charts their bittersweet search for comfort in the darkest of places, and for a path that will lead them back into the light of day.
Joanne Froggatt (Downtown Abbey) stars in David Lindsay-Abaire's powerful play 'Rabbit Hole', now making its long-awaited UK debut. Recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2007 and four Tony Award nominations including Best Play, 'Rabbit Hole' includes comedy as well as drama in its study of how a family copes with a major loss.
Froggatt takes on the role of a greiving mother of a young boy, who tries to ease her pain by destroying and clearing out anything that reminds her of him. The play has also been adapted into an Oscar-, Golden Globe- and Screen Actors Guild-nominated film starring Nicole Kidman.
