Joanne Froggatt in Rabbit Hole at the Vaudeville Theatre
David Linsay-Abaire’s Award Winning Play Appearing in the West End under the Direction of Nigel Harman
The Vaudeville Theatre is in the news again today as it is announced that Rabbit Hole, the acclaimed 2006 play by David Lindsay-Abaire, will be landing at the venue in September with Joanne Froggatt in a lead role and Nigel Harman directing. It follows last week’s news that Hetty Feather will be appearing at the venue in August following its run at the Rose Theatre Kingston.
Both shows follow the current production of Handbagged, which features Marion Bailey and Stella Gonet as the Queen and Margaret Thatcher respectively, and that that will continue to the venue until later in the summer.
Rabbit Hole is a drama that focuses on a family that suffers a huge loss. Parents Becca and Howie Corbet have everything that they could wish for, but suddenly everything changes and this major upset could see their relationship fall apart.
The 2006 play originally appeared in New York and has since played on stages throughout the United States (and on cinema screens in a 2010 movie). It now comes to London where it will have its West End premiere under the direction of actor Nigel Harman, perhaps best known to audiences for his performance as Shrek in Shrek The Musical.
Meanwhile, actress Joanna Froggatt has previously appeared in various well known British television programmes, ranging from the ever-popular Downton Abbey to the renowned series Life On Mars, in addition to the James McAvoy movie Filth. Recent years have also seen her appear on the stage in the likes of The Knowledge at the Bush Theatre, All About My Mother at the Old Vic Theatre and Be My Baby for the Soho Theatre Company.
Finally, playwright David Lindsay-Abaire has penned many acclaimed shows, with Rabbit Hole winning the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Shrek The Musical, for which he penned the book and lyrics, being performed around the world.
Rabbit Hole follows both Handbagged and Hetty Feather at the Vaudeville Theatre with a run beginning on Wednesday 24th September 2014 (previews from Thursday 11th September 2014). It is then set to continue until Saturday 22nd November 2014.
