UP THE RABBIT HOLE opened Tuesday, September 26th, at Theater for the New City (155 1st Avenue at 10th Street) for a run through Sunday, October 15th.

BroadwayWorld has photos from the opening festivities below!

UP THE RABBIT HOLE is the story of a young gay man who, desperate to find answers to questions that consume his life as an adopted child, becomes obsessed with tracking down and connecting with his birth mother. His lack of identity in these formative years has led to a life of careless sexual exploits and reckless drug use. When he finally finds his mother, the answers he has been searching for his entire life finally give him the courage to combat his drug addiction and climb out of the darkness and UP THE RABBIT HOLE.

Drawing on his own life experiences, playwright Andy Halliday approaches the subject by infusing his work with his signature brand of twisted humor. Tackling the issues of low self-esteem, loneliness, and addiction he has experienced as a gay man, UP THE RABBIT HOLE is a natural progression in Halliday's writing and his most personal work to date.

UP THE RABBIT HOLE features performances by Quinn Coughlin, Andrew Glaszek, Peter Gregus, Tyler Jones and Laralu Smith. Scenic design is by Dan Daly, with costume design by Tyler M. Hollandwith, lighting design by Joseph Thompson and sound design by Jacob Subotnick.. UP THE RABBIT HOLE was developed by Windowpane Theatre Company.
