David Lindsay-Abaire’s Pulitzer winning Rabbit Hole has been on my radar since I arrived at Hampstead and presenting its UK premiere is a real pleasure, particularly after the success of Good People here two years ago. For all his Boston roots, David is very much the modern Hampstead writer, and his mature work feels tailor-made for our Main Stage. It’s gratifying to deepen and properly cement our relationship with him. Rabbit Hole is at its heart a love story, which again evidences his deep humanity, but whilst David’s preoccupations are serious and his intentions complex, he never loses sight of the need to keep an audience entertained. It’s been a joy to work with him on this play. Each day’s rehearsal has been truly satisfying as we have excavated ever deeper into the lives of the people he has imagined with such wit, tenderness and care. I hope you enjoy meeting them.
