DILLON The Lake Dillon Theatre begins today its run of Rabbit Hole, a play which won the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Real life married couple Kelly and Gary Ketzenbarger lead the work as Becca and Howie, parents dealing with the death of their 4-year-old son.The title is a reference to a short science fiction story written by the high school student who accidentally hit the child with his car. There is a scene where Becca meets with the teenager (played by Taylor Trensch). He explains the short story to her, and in so doing reveals the science behind parallel universes.So theres a me making pancakes. Theres a me at the water park, Becca says in the play. I like that. Somewhere out there Im having a good time.Throughout the play, this is the closest the mother gets to a bearable understanding of reality.Aside from this one moment in the characters lives, all else deals with the way the family relates to each other, eight months after tragedy struck.Kelly Ketzenbarger described the relationships as often having a disconnect.They are trying to reach out, but are not able to, she said.Beccas sister Izzy (played by Megan Malsam) brings another storyline into the play, and offers some comic relief. Beccas mother (played by Jennifer Condreay) is also present, adding some insight into Beccas childhood.There are moments of levity and normalcy interspersed with moments of profound grief, Gary Ketzenbarger said.Director Chris Alleman described the play as a kitchen sink drama, due to its intimate nature.It takes place in the house (its about) what happens interiorly with the family, not anything outside, Alleman said.Rabbit Hole opens tonight and runs through June 15, starting at 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 6:30 p.m. on Sundays.Leslie Brefeld can be reached at (970) 668-4626 or lbrefeld@summitdaily.com.

Theyre all among the cockeyed characters in James Lapine and Stephen Sondheims fractured fairy tale.
