Tickets on sale for Bay Play

The Bay College Drama Department is proud to be offering an award-winning play this spring.  Rabbit Hole, by playwright David Lindsay-Abaire, is an emotional tale about a family recovering after the loss of a child.

Tickets for this drama are available at the campus box office Monday through Friday between 8 am and 4:30 pm.  They can also be purchased online by going to www.baycollege.edu/tickets.  The prices have remained the same as last year with the public at $8 and students at $6 each.

Rabbit Hole is known by many as a film starring Nicole Kidman.  However, most of its praise came from the original Broadway production that won a Tony award as well as the 2006 Pulitzer Prize.  It won the Pulitzer without even being nominated; for the 19-person Board felt this powerful play was worthy despite being ignored by the nominating jury.

In this drama, Becca and Howie Corbett seem to have everything - until a tragedy turns their life upside-down.  Becca’s mother, Nat, tries to share her experiences while the free-spirited sister, Izzy, offers what she can.  To complicate matters, the teenage boy who was involved in the accident tries to make contact with the family. The Daily News called this play a “perfect mix of sorrow, humor, and love.”

Over 20 students, including the five-member cast, are involved in this show.  Director Crystal Dwyer is impressed with the dedication the group has, “This semester we are blessed to have a hard-working crew as well as a responsible cast.  They all know what a special endeavor this play is and they are accepting the challenge with both strength and tenderness.”

April 4, 5, and 6th are the dates of this Bay College production.  The curtain is at 7:30 each night in the Besse Center Theatre.  For more information, call the Box Office at 217-4045 or email Dwyer at dwyerc@baycollege.edu.
