BRUNSWICK – The Theater Project’s Professional Ensemble will present “Rabbit Hole,” the 2007 Pulitzer Prize winner for best drama, July 11 through July 27. Written by David Lindsey-Abaire and directed by Al Miller, “Rabbit Hole” is a play about a family’s efforts to communicate. It deals with grief, humor, hope, understanding and misunderstanding.

“Rabbit Hole” focuses on a tragic accident that is intensely felt by all of the characters – five ordinary people who confront extraordinary circumstances, as we all do at some time – and their efforts to understand the accident and their response to it and to each other.

“This is one of the best scripts I’ve worked with, and we have a terrific cast,” said Miller. “Their collective energy brings this remarkable work of art to life.”

The play features Heather Weafer, last seen as M’Lynn in “Steel Magnolias,” as well Craig Ela, Lee K. Paige and Reba Short. Young Company member Sean McGuire makes his debut in a Professional Ensemble play as the young boy who lives nearby.

Shows are at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 5 p.m. Sunday. (There is no Sunday performance on July 13). Tickets are $18 Friday and Saturday and pay what you want Thursday and Sunday. For reservations, call 729-8584 or visit the box office at 14 School St.
