Directed by Gerry Gerringer. The farcical comedy focuses on Prudence and Bruce, two Manhanttanites who are seeking stable romantic relationships with the help of their psychiatrists, each of whom suggests the patient place a personal ad. Bruce is a highly emotional bisexual who tends to cry easily, a trait homophobic Prudence sees as a weakness. Their first meeting proves to be disastrous and the two report back to their respective therapists - libidinous Stuart, who once seduced Prudence, and eccentric Charlotte, who stumbles over the simplest of words, references the play Equus as a good source of advice, and interacts with Bruce and all her patients with the help of a stuffed Snoopy. Clearly the two are more troubled than their patients. Charlotte suggests a revised ad, which once again attracts Prudence, but this time she and Bruce manage to get past their initial loathing and discover they actually like each other. Complications ensue when Bruce's jealous live-in lover Bob decides to assert himself and do everything possible to maintain his status quo.
Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays February 26th through March 21st.
Rabbit Hole, winner of the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for drama, is a beautifully observed and heartfelt look into the grief and healing one family experiences dealing with a death in the family. Meticulously mapped, Lindsay-Abaire never panders with cheap sentiment and histrionics. He gives us a family who is "highly functional, unsentimental, spirited and, often, funny people who are trying to maneuver their way through their grief and around each other as best they can".
Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays May 7th through June 20th.
