Rabbit Hole

Wednesday, 28 April 2021 to Saturday, 8 May 2021

Rabbit Hole begins eight months after the unimaginable loss of Becca and Howie’s 4 year old toddler, Danny.

His parents have been struggling to keep it all together. He by joining a self-help group, she by removing traces of Danny in the house to stop being continually confronted by his absence.

Both are in different spaces.

Becca’s sister and mother do what they can to help them to cope with their grief, but they have issues of their own.

While the play deals with some bleak issues, it is also a humorous look at family life in which we can recognise ourselves.  To quote Gail Morrison (Nat in the play): ‘I love the role because it’s a carbon copy of me and my daughters of a Saturday afternoon with a couple of glasses of wine!’

“In … an intimate setting the audience is gifted with a journey that touches on nearly all the
fundamental yearning of loss, gain, and how we humans mourn.  It is what theatre goers thrive for; a
chance to feel, empathize and contemplate the limits of a person facing unfair circumstances.”

(Niki Hatzidis, New York)

If you only get to see one show this year Rabbit Hole at the Bakehouse should be the one.
Janice Bailey - Adelaide Theatre guide
..it is a strangely beautiful piece of theatre that is complex in its topic. This cast is solid. The story is powerful. Rabbit Hole is a play that needs to be seen.
Matthew Hoctor - Theatre Travels
Rabbit Hole is quite magnificently written, from the desultory conversation that serves when there are no words to truly express feelings of the keenest pain, to cruel barbs filled with anger – even hatred and loathing.
Peter Burdon - Advertiser
Bravo Joh Hartog Productions for handling such a difficult subject with finess - a compelling piece of theatre!
