DENTON — The bittersweet story of a family struggling to survive after losing their 4-year-old son unfolds on the Denton stage as the Texas Woman’s University Drama program presents Rabbit Hole Oct. 16-20.

Performances will be at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 16; 4 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 17; 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 18; 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 19; and 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 20.

To reserve tickets online or for more information, visit or call the TWU Box Office at (940) 898-2020.

In an effort to provide all members of the community with an opportunity to attend a theatrical performance, TWU Drama now offers a “pay what you can” option at the 2 p.m. Saturday performance. This option does not apply to tickets purchased online. Tickets must be purchased at the box office prior to the scheduled performance and are offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

Rabbit Hole — David Lindsay-Abaire’s Pulitzer Prize-winning, Tony-nominated play — tells of the struggle of a family whose 4-year-old son has died in a tragic accident. Each family member, experiencing wildly different forms of grief, searches for clarity on how to return to the routine of their daily lives. The play explores the difficult process of searching for hope, grace and forgiveness after the unthinkable happens.

TWU Professor Emerita Sharon Benge will direct the production. The cast includes TWU graduate student Kristi Smith and undergraduate students Kayla Harris and Claire Watson. University of North Texas undergraduate students Matthew Woldt and Seth Jones collaborate with TWU for this production. TWU staff and students share design responsibilities, with technical director Michael Stevens providing the set and lighting design, assistant professor Rhonda Gorman designing the costumes and sophomores Shawney Rogers and Chelsea Reeves designing the properties and sound, respectively. Senior Kelsey Jones is the stage manager, working with graduate student Heather Alverson as the assistant director.
