The Thunder River Theatre Company is proud to present their opening season of 2023-2024 on Friday with “Rabbit Hole” by David Lindsay-Abaire. The TRTC’s rendition is directed by Missy Moore. 

Becca and Howie Corbett have everything a family could want, until a life-shattering accident turns their world upside down and leaves the couple drifting perilously 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, the release states. 

“Rabbit Hole” first premiered on Broadway in January of 2006. It received five Tony awards, one of which was for Best Play, and won the Pulitzer for Drama in 2007, TRTC’s dramaturg Kayla Henley noted.

Rabbit Hole explores one of the most painful and universal human experiences — grief — with poignancy, nuance and humor,” Henley said. “Through the snapshot of a single family’s loss, we see the complex nature of grief and how it refuses to be packaged neatly.”

Eleven performances of the play will take place between Sep. 15 and Oct. 1 (Thunder River Theater is located at 67 Promenade, Carbondale):

  • 7:30 p.m.Thursdays 
  • 7:30 p.m. Fridays 
  • 7:30 p.m. Saturdays 
  • 2 p.m. Sundays – talkback scheduled following performance on Sep. 24

The cast is as follows:

  • Toddy Walters — Becca
  • Mark Millhone — Howie 
  • Brittany Crooke —  Izzy
  • Libby Rife — Nat
  • Ricky Perez — Jason 

This is Millhone, Crooke and Perez’s main-stage debut at TRTC.
