Sherman Community Players announce Rabbit Hole
Written by: David Lindsay-Abaire
Directed by: Anthony Nelson
Featuring: Molly Bower, Megan McCullough, Shane Beeson, Becky Smith, and Morgan Henard
This is the last weekend to catch the Sherman Community Players production of the 2007 Pulitzer Prize winner Rabbit Hole by playwright David Lindsay- Abaire. Rabbit Hole follows the lives of Howie and Becca Corbett who had everything a family could want, until a life-altering 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 playwright David Lindsay-Abaire, should be a familiar name to the general public," mentions Anthony Nelson, Artistic Director of SCP. "As a screenwriter, he is known for his work on Robots, Oz; The Great and Powerful, and Shrek 3."
"We have gone to great lengths to bring the fruitfulness of this material to life,” Nelson elaborates, “and I don’t want to be misunderstood; when I talk about this play not being appropriate for children, it’s not because of the ‘true to life’ dialogue Lindsay-Abaire has constructed -- it’s because of the adult themes of grieving and loss that the play explores. If anyone has ever had to experience the tragedy of losing someone or something close to them, then this play is going to speak to them. It addresses a lot of universal issues that I think a lot of people will relate with, and I know people will walk out of the theatre pleasantly surprised at just how moved they feel because of this production.”
Rounding out the talented cast are locals Becky Smith and Megan McCullough and, from the metroplex area, some new faces to the SCP Audiences which include: Molly Bower, Shane Beeson, and Morgan Henard.
“I have been extremely impressed with the cast on this show -- this group is very dedicated to telling this story, and the amount of commitment I have seen from them has been a real treat to work with," Nelson says.
