For Stage 212's 2021 Fall production, Larry Kelsey will be directing "Rabbit Hole," the Pulitzer Prize-winning drama by David Lindsay-Abaire.
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.
Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. No preparation is needed and familiarity with the script is not required. All are encouraged to audition, regardless of prior theatrical experience. The audition process will follow IDPH guidelines for Phase 5. Everybody attending must wear a mask while in the building, regardless of vaccination status, and must maintain social distancing of at least 6 ft. Masks may only be removed when reading on stage, and must be put back on immediately thereafter.
Kelsey will be casting one man and one woman able to play late thirties/early forties, one woman able to play early thirties, one woman able to play mid-sixties and one man able to play a seventeen-year old boy. Character descriptions can be found below.
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.
