The Kentwood Players theater group will present David Lindsay-Abaire’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play Rabbit Hole, which tells the story of a married couple coping with their grief after the sudden death of their child, beginning Friday, Jan. 13 through Feb. 18.

Performances are scheduled at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays at the Westchester Playhouse, 8301 Hindry Ave. in Westchester.

Rabbit Hole won the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for drama, and Cynthia Nixon won the 2006 Tony Award for Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Play for her performance as Becca in the New York production.

The play follows married couple Becca and Howie, whose world is turned upside down following the death of their child. As they drift apart, their lives are further complicated by Becca’s mother and sister, as well as the 17-year-old boy responsible for their son’s accidental death.

Over time, the five characters in the play grow and change through realistic, vivid, and hopeful interactions resulting in acceptance and understanding.

The Westchester production is directed by Sheridan Cole Crawford and produced by Linda Reinhardt by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service. The cast includes Kenny Allen, Lois Bostwick, Harold Dershimer, Alison Mattiza, and Tara Tyson.

Tickets are $18 for general admission, with a $2 discount for seniors, students, and service members.

To purchase tickets, (310) 645-5156 during box office hours, Tuesday through Saturday from 4 to 7 p.m.
