The Royalty Theatre will continue their 2017/18 season with the award-winning drama, Rabbit Hole. 

David Lindsay-Abaire’s play, which won the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, focuses on Becca and Howie, a couple who have lost their young child to a tragic accident.  As tension grows between the grieving couple, Becca’s sister Izzy announces that she is pregnant.  And the young driver involved in the accident is looking for forgiveness.

Director Lee Stewart says, “Ever since I read this play three years ago, I fell in love with its raw and emotional dialogue which surrounds such a devastating subject matter. My hat goes off to my fantastically gifted cast for perfectly honouring David Lindsay-Abaire's award-winning juggernaut."

Lee is himself a playwright of growing reputation at the Royalty Theatre – his play Too Faithed features in the Sunderland and Durham One-act Play Festival at Arts Centre Washington next month, and his own There’s Someone Coming Through is an out-of-season offering from the Royalty in July.

Rabbit Hole comes hot on the heels of another hard-hitting drama from the Royalty, Five Kinds of Silence, which received enormous praise over its four-night run last month.

A cast of new and experienced faces includes Corrinne Kilvington and Ryan Rowntree as the grieving couple, with Abbi Laidler as Izzy.  Anna Snell and Ben Gettins also star.

The play runs from 19th-24th February. Tickets can be booked via or on 0333 666 3366, and are priced at £8 (£6.50 concessions).
