A story of loss, heartbreak and forgiveness, as a family moves on after the accidental death of their four-year-old, it is a perceptive and poignant study in the day-to-day aches of bereavement: problems with personal intimacy, the uneasy friends who don’t call, and the emptiness in a house packed with reminders.Paul Nelson, the adjudicator applauded SCP for bringing “Rabbit Hole” to the stage. “The company took on the challenge of a beautifully wriiten but complex play and made it appear effortless. Their production was engaging and thought provoking.””Rabbit Hole” will be staged at the Main Street School auditorium in Waterloo, at 8 p.m. Oct. 21 and 22.
