Cherokee Theater Presents Rabbit Hole
(Cherokee) -- How would you deal with the death of a child? Would it affect your relationships and could you ever get through the grief? These are the themes tackled by the Cherokee Community Theater in their upcoming production of "Rabbit Hole." Andrew Linn is co-directing the show with his wife Pamela. He's also playing the lead male role in the performances coming up October 5th-9th. Linn loves the way the playwright, David Lindsay-Abaire, handles the dialogue in the script. He says both strong emotion and humor come through while handling a very tough topic.
In addition to the couple the play includes three other characters: the wife's mother and sister and a brief appearance by the teenage boy that played a part in the childs death. Linn says his experienced cast includes: Penny Pingrey, Joe Vanetta, Jonie Anderson and Trisha Koster.
Why is the play called Rabbit Hole? Linn explains.
Rabbit Hole is a Pulitzer Prize Winner, and a film based on the play was made with the same name in 2010. It stars Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart. Cherokee Community Theater will be presenting the production next Wednesday through Sunday, October 5th-9th with evening performances at 7:30 and a Sunday matinee at 2pm. There will also be an opening night wine and cheese reception Wednesday starting at 6:15 featuring live music by Jimmy Davis.
