Wichita, Kan. – Friends University will present the Pulitzer Prize-winning play, Rabbit Hole Friday, Sept. 30 through Sunday, Oct. 2, 2022.
David Lindsay-Abaire’s drama is filled with distinctive wit and grace. The story charts Becca and Howie Corbett’s bittersweet search for comfort after tragedy. It’s a complex narrative delving into navigating grief and family relations when things don’t go according to plan.
The play is directed by Shelon Mba, assistant professor of music theatre & dance. “We’re given an in-depth look into the private life of a broken home – a perspective we rarely see. It’ll feel uncomfortable but reassuring knowing that no family is perfect and that the grieving process isn’t linear,” said Mba. “I’m incredibly proud of all our cast and crew of Rabbit Hole and invite the community to join us on this journey.”
The performance will take place Sept. 30 and Oct. 1 at 7:30 p.m. and Oct. 2, at 2 p.m. in Sebits Auditorium in the Riney Fine Arts building on the Friends University campus at 2100 W. University Ave., Wichita, Kan.
Tickets are $12 for adults and $9 for seniors and students. They may be purchased online at friends.edu/fineartstickets or by calling the Fine Arts Box Office at 316-295-5677.
