This 2007 Pulitzer Prize-winning play by David Lindsay-Abaire paints a nuanced portrait of Becky and Howard, who each try in their own way to recover from the accidental death of their son. But when this family of ‘three’ reverts to being ‘two’, and with an abyss that links them as much as it separates them, the task appears insurmountable. By retracing the story of this family, which suddenly finds itself completely lost, Rabbit Hole reveals the difficulty of freeing oneself from the conflicts of suffering and regrets that have an isolating effect, but it also uses humour to show the instinct for life that eventually overcomes the tragedy, and thus it is that other possibilities begin to emerge from this black hole of despair. Working with Julie Gayet, whose inner luminosity is at the heart of the cast, Claudia Stavisky masters the subtle underground cartography of human passions to produce an intimate journey that leads to resilience and acceptance.
