Richly deserving of its Pulitzer for Drama, Rabbit Hole shares thejourney of married couple Becca and Howie as they grieve over the accidental death of their four-year-old son, killed when he chased his pet dog in front of a car.
A sparse, poignant drama about grieving, it’s also rich in very human wit and ultimately opens the door to hope, evoking empathy, while eschewing the maudlin and melodramatic (the playwright provides three pages of precise instructions to ensure this).
