New images have been released of the cast of Rabbit Hole rehearsing for the UK premiere of Edward Hall’s production of David Lindsay-Abaire’s play.
Previewing at the Hampstead Theatre from the 29th January, Rabbit Hole looks at what happens when your life is suddenly and shockingly turned upside down.
Becca and Howie Corbett are a happy suburban family with everything they could want until a shocking and sudden event turns their world upside down and leaves them drifting perilously apart. Riding the turbulence of domestic life, Becca and Howie must find a way back to each other whilst their unpredictable family tries to bridge the ‘infinite space between’, which life changing events create.
The cast includes: Claire Skinner, Tom Goodman-Hill, Penny Downie (replacing Alison Steadman), Georgina Rich and Sean Delaney.
Claire Skinner is making her Hampstead Theatre debut, playing the role of Becca. Her previous credits include: The Father at Wyndham’s Theatre and the Tricycle Theatre and Othello at the National Theatre.
Tom Goodman-Hill last appeared at Hampstead Theatre in Darker Shores. Other previous credits include roles in Earthquakes in London (National Theatre) and Death and the Maiden (Harold Pinter Theatre).
Penny Downie will play Nat. She has most recently appeared in Downton Abbey as Lady Sinderby. Other theatre credits include Helen (The Globe) and Storm in a Flower Vase (The Arts Theatre).
David Lindsay-Abaire returns to the Hampstead Theatre, following the success of his comedy Good People which starred Imelda Staunton and went on to transfer to the West End. Other credits include Shrek the Musical and Fuddy Meers. While Edward Hall’s Hampstead Theatre credits include Chariots of Fire and Sunny Afternoon.
