Marion Art Center Theater announces open auditions for the upcoming production of Rabbit Hole written by David Lindsay-Abaire.

Synopsis: Becca and Howie Corbett have everything a family could want, until a life-shattering 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.

Director Kate Fishman will be casting five roles: one male and one female able to play late thirties/early forties, one female able to play early thirties, one female able to play mid-sixties and one male able to play a seventeen-year old boy.

Character descriptions:

  • Becca - Late thirties/early forties. Howie's wife. Danny's mother. Usually a very responsible, practical and sensible person but her grief causes her to make some rash decisions throughout the play.
  • Howie - Late thirties/early forties. Becca's husband. Danny's father. He is very caring, patient and attentive to Becca, but has a hard time dealing with Danny's death, though he hides it as much as possible.
  • Izzy - Early thirties. Becca's younger sister. Irresponsible and impulsive, but well-intentioned. Having trouble "finding herself."
  • Nat - Mid sixties. Becca's and Izzy's mother. Outspoken and opinionated, with a tendency to say the wrong thing, she is extremely supportive of her daughters, and frequently acts as their voice of reason.
  • Jason - 17 years old. Boy who accidently hit Danny with his car. Awkward and shy, but sensitive and caring, he blames himself completely for Danny's death.
