Actors for Rabbit Hole by David Lindsay-Abaire

Actors for Rabbit Hole by David Lindsay-Abaire

Queensland, Australia
Listed by View details

Rabbit Hole, written by David Lindsay-Abaire, premiered on Broadway in 2006 and was the recipient of a Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2007. Rabbit Hole is an honest, brave, and searingly touching portrait of a family experiencing the most heartbreaking of griefs.

The play follows Becca and Howie Corbett, a couple in their late thirties, in the months following a horrific accident. Searching for what is still possible in everyday existence after unimaginable agony.

Becca finds pain in the familiar, while Howie finds comfort. He wants to hold on to the memories, cherish them, obsess over them; she wants to move on, erase the past, and start fresh.
Cracks begin to appear in the relationship as Howie bonds with a member of a therapy group and Becca reaches out to a teenage boy with an intertwined past. Tensions are only increased with the tumultuous involvement of Becca’s mother, Nat, and her sister, Izzy.

The journey for this couple, this family, is an intimate glimpse into loved ones learning to re-engage with one another, couples learning to love again, and people learning to piece themselves together after everything falls apart.

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR…

All actors may need to be competent in Standard American. The main character of Becca Corbett has already been cast. We are looking for the following:

Female roles (2 needed)

Izzy (20s/30s)
Becca's irresponsible but well-intending sister. She just got into a new relationship, his name is Auggie, and is pregnant with his child. While Becca is suspicious of Izzy’s ability, Izzy is confident, competent, and intelligent, if not a little wild and chaotic.

Nat (50s/60s)
Izzy and Becca's mother. She is the voice of reason for both of her daughters. She is a helper by nature and only wants the best for her family, as it has gone through its fair share of pain.

Male roles (2 needed)

Howie (30s)
Very charismatic and caring. Quick tempered, emotional and forceful. He obsessively clings onto the memories and is in a spiral, refusing to let go, scared he will forget.

Jason (16-18)
17-year-old boy. He is young and awkward, but warm and sweet. He lives with his mom. He enjoys science fiction and writes a story about wormholes to other dimensions as a way of coping with the traumatic events in his life.
