OCC Theater Presents Pulitzer-Winning ‘Rabbit Hole’

Oakland Community College’s Orchard Ridge Theatre Program shines a light on loss and family dynamics in “Rabbit Hole,” March 19 – 28 in Farmington Hills.3.19-3.28

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.

Ashley Croft, a theatre major in her second year at OCC, plays Becca, a grieving mother.

“It’s definitely the biggest challenge I’ve faced as an actor, both because of the size and complexity of the part. But this is the best cast and crew I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. They’ve been right behind me every step of the way, pushing and supporting me whenever I need it.”

Winner of the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, the “Rabbit Hole” tackles tough issues but also maintains a dark humor many audiences find appealing. Nicole Kidman was so drawn to the script that she produced and starred in the Oscar-nominated 2010 film adaptation.

“It is heavy, and it hurts, but it’s also enormously hopeful,” Croft said. “This script moved me so much just by reading it, and I think we’ve managed to bring it to life. Come on by, and let us move you, too.”

Show dates are March 19, 20, 21 and 26, 27, 28. All performances are at 8 p.m. at the Smith Theatre in OCC’s Orchard Ridge Campus, 27055 Orchard Lake Road, Farmington Hills.
