Sunrise Theater Live: “Rabbit Hole” with Discussion Panel

February 18 @ 3:00 pm


The first show for Sunrise Live’s 2024 season is Rabbit Hole!

The Sunrise Theater, along with FirstHealth Hospice & Palliative Care and FirstHealth Grief Resource & Counseling Center, will be presenting the Pulitzer and Tony Award-winning play, Rabbit Hole, by David Lindsay-Abaire, from February 16-25, at the Sunrise Theater. The play is a mature drama about grief and hope. Rabbit Hole follows a family as it works its way through the stages of loss while struggling to support each other through their pain with humor and love. Rabbit Hole is an intimate and beautiful show, both visually and dramatically: an absolute must-see, even if theatergoers might need tissues to get through it. It is important to understand that the play features the serious issue of child loss, and has other mature topics, including some mature language, mention of suicide and mention of drug use.

After the first Sunday matinee, on February 18th at 3pm there will be a special discussion panel with the cast along with FirstHealth bereavement counselor, Ken Stewart, LCSW, who counsels adults, children and teens. The panel will discuss how the play deals with the different stages of grief, how they brought this very human story to life by tapping into their own emotions and will take Q&A along with Mr. Stewart. It will be an invaluable program for psychology and literature teachers and students, counselors and social workers, and anyone either wrestling with their own grief or who knows someone who is. It will be an amazing lesson in how art and life mirror each other, how art can help people with their grief, and how grief can, in turn, inform their art.

Tickets are $27.50 and available at the Sunrise Box Office. For additional information and online ticket purchases, CLICK HERE.
