Woody Allen's quirky play that inspired the famous film of the same name, Play It Again Sam, follows the life of Allan Felix, a recent divorcé whose awkward interactions with women have forced him to rely on the advice of his hero, Humphrey Bogart.
Told through a series of hilarious fantasy sequences, Allan's hero Bogart comes to the rescue with a fantastic bevy of beauties. With the encouragement of his alter ego, he actually tries dating again, with less than satisfactory results at first.
Director Cheryl Butler writes in the program for Rabbit Hole at Arts Theatre Cronulla that ‘beautiful’ may seem like the wrong word to describe this amazing play, but stresses there is beauty in the sadness of Rabbit Hole. Recipient of the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and nominated for several Tony awards, Rabbit Hole examines the disconnect that grief can cause.

Restoration Comedy a Timely Romp for Adelaide’s Stirling Players
Adelaide audiences always look forward to shows in the hands of well-known director Dave Simms because he has the happy knack of choosing plays outside the mainstream, adding his signature touch of professionalism to productions and invariably ensuring a hit.
