So, I'm in a play. And it is, in fact, called Rabbit Hole. It's about a couple dealing with their grief over the death of their four year old son. I know. It's so not a comedy. However, it IS a Pulitzer Prize winning play and it is, needless to say, pretty intense. Having said all that, you should come on out for an uplifting night of theater! But seriously, I don't think it's all that depressing and I think it's an incredibly realistic depiction of the different ways that people deal with loss. Although it's been kicking my bootay, I always love a challenge and I get to share the stage with my good friends Chris and Jenny. Another reason I like this play? The characters are eating various baked goods in EVERY scene (which is totally how I would grieve, let's be honest.) But the Broadway actors must have gained 40 lbs. during the run.
Anyway, you should come see it, if you dare. We perform May 1, 2 and 3 in the UVSC BlackBox Theater at 7:30 pm. The best part? It's FREE! (My director, Alex Ungerman, said we weren't supposed to say that because you might think free things mean crappy things, but trust me on this one. It's worth it just to see Chris Clark act-a rare treat!)
P.S. I love this song right now and I think it fits the theme of the play, don't you? (If you think that I pick specific songs to match my blog posts, then you are absolutely right and you win a prize.)
