Video: RABBIT HOLE Trailer Released
Manila, Philippines--Commercial video production company !Gung Ho Films lends a hand to Red Turnip Theater to helm the official trailer of the latter's second season opener, David Lindsay-Abaire's 2007 Pulitzer Prize winning play RABBIT HOLE. Directed by Enzo Marcos, the teaser film introduces the play's main cast Michael Williams, Agot Isidro, Sheila Francisco, and Che Ramos-Cosio.
RABBIT HOLE, which also marks the directorial debut of seasoned theater actor Topper Fabregas, premieres on Friday, August 1, and will run until Sunday, August 31, at Whitespace (2314 Don Chino Roces Ave., Makati City).
Adapted into a critically acclaimed film in 2010, RABBIT HOLE's official synopsis is as follows: Husband and wife Howie (Williams) and Becca (Isidro) have everything they could want, until a life-shattering accident turns their world upside down, and leaves the couple drifting perilously apart. Becca, who must also cope with the distractions of her reckless sister Izzy (Ramos-Cosio) and their opinionated mother Nat (Francisco), takes solace in her unlikely friendship with a neighborhood teenager Jason (Ross Pesigan), who might provide the key to lead her back from the darkest of places.
"Despite the subject, this is not a heavy drama. It's very funny at times and there's always a somewhat optimistic feel. Instead of being witnesses to a tragedy, ...Lindsay-Abaire has set the audience up as cheerleaders, pushing for the characters to find a way through their differences. In one of the final scenes, when Becca does something so positively normal, it's an optimistic sign that at some point things are going to be all right," says Michael Dale of BroadwayWorld.com.
For its Manila premiere, John Batalla is technical director and lighting designer; Faust Peneyra, set designer; and Jethro Joaquin, sound designer.
