Talk-Back Night, Friday, September 16 at 10pm (FREE EVENT)
Join The Little Theatre of Alexandria for a conversation moderated by National Public Radio reporter Alix Spiegel with Rabbit Hole director Joanna Henry, the cast and guest psychologist Dr. Robin Haight as they discuss overcoming and processing loss and how the director and cast approached the subject matter and roles. Rabbit Hole cast includes an award-winning ensemble of actors: Andy Izquierdo, eight-time nominee and three-time winner of the Washington Area Theatre Community Honors (WATCH); Rebecca Lenehan, also a WATCH recipient; Karen Jadlos Shotts, two-time WATCH awardee for Best Actress; Rebecca Phillips and Collin Chute.

Rabbit Hole is a touching story about the different ways a couple overcomes the accidental death of their child. Set eight months later after the loss of their son, this delicate and poignant narrative explores blame, grief and resilience. LTA continues its long tradition of powerful dramas with this challenging Pulitzer-prize winning play written by David Lindsay-Abaire, directed by Joanna Henry, produced by Rachel Alberts and Bobbie Herbst.

Talk-Back is a FREE event and starts at 10pm, immediately following performance of Rabbit Hole. The play is from 8 - 10pm.  Tickets are required for the play.

Rabbit Hole runs from September 10 through October 1, 2011. Tickets available for purchase online, www.thelittletheatre.com.
