Theater | Rabbit Hole: A College Production
Written by: Duncan Macmillan. Directed by: Zenon Kruszelnicki. "Darryl is 15 and already broken. His mum killed herself, his school has excluded him from lessons, an Asbo hangs over him, and he has a worrying obsession with his nan's kitchen knife and Charles Manson. But trainee teacher Tom, escaping a City job and a mental breakdown, wants to make a difference. His pregnant wife, Jodi, doubts that Darryl can be repaired, but Tom is determined to patch the boy up. He can't change the history, but maybe he can make a better future, particularly if he can enlist the help of Rita, who says she wants the best for her grandson. In the process, Tom might make a better future for his own unborn child, his own "little monster"." - The Guardian
