‘RABBIT HOLE'
7:30 p.m., Weekend Theater. $10-$14.

The winner of the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, David Lindsay-Abaire's “Rabbit Hole” sounds like the stuff of a weepy Lifetime movie of the week. The plot centers on a couple trying to cope with the death of their only child, a 4-year-old. Later, the young driver who accidentally killed their son in an auto accident contacts them hoping for closure. But Pulitizer Prize-winners don't usually get confused for Lifetime dramas. Writing in the New York Times, Ben Brantley had this to say, “the sad, sweet release … lies … in the access it allows to the pain of others, in its meticulously mapped empathy.” The Weekend Theater promises “generous spoonfuls of humor” will leaven the mood, too. Andy Hall directs the play, which continues through May 23.
