The Philadelphia Street Playhouse has been selected to participate in the Cultural Capital of the Commonwealth events coinciding with the Governer’s Awards for the Arts and as such will host an open house from 1:00PM-3:00PM on September 28th. If you haven’t been to the Philadelphia Street Playhouse, this is a great time to see what you’ve been missing. Located in the heart of Indiana County at 725 Philadelphia Street (less than a block away from the Courthouse, Library, and Jimmy Stewart Museum).

Winner of the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

When a painful moment arrives in your life how do you cope? At its heart, Rabbit Hole is a character study of those mechanisms. This story is about a family exploring each of those avenues. Wry humor, transferrance, anger, simply ignoring the matter, getting into bar fights, baking dessert after dessert, holding on to the past, or letting go?
There are no easy answers, and everyone has their own method of grieving.
Keeping those thoughts in mind, Rabbit Hole is not a somber affair. People will be themselves, even in trying times. A grandmother who can’t help herself but talk about conspiracy theories and a sarcastic sister who wants the spotlight on her for birthdays and baby showers paint a veneer on the unspoken issues.
Life goes on, and at the core of this story is a family that truly loves each other.
It’s a marvelous, thought provoking script laced with everyday humor stemming from personalities you’ll instantly recognize from your own families. Rabbit Hole is well deserving of the writing awards it has won, and we’re proud to bring that script to stage.

Auditions were: August 11, 12 from 6-8PM each night.
