The Dakota Organization presents the Northern Nevada premiere of “Rabbit Hole,” Friday through June 28, at the CVIC Hall in Minden.

The 2007 Pulitzer Prize-winning play by David Lindsey-Abaire has been performed on Broadway with Cynthia Nixon in the starring role. Actress Nicole Kidman has purchased the movie rights “Rabbit Hole.”

The story focuses on a family trying to find meaning and comfort after a tragedy. Filled with memorable characters and wit, “Rabbit Hole” shows how the love of a family can help heal even the most painful wounds. This production is the first to be performed in Northern Nevada.

“I’m extremely excited to be introducing this show to Northern Nevada,” said Dakota Organization founder Teri Levy, who plays the mother of the deceased child. “It’s a beautiful production that surely will move the audience.”

Dave Anderson plays the part of Howie, with Ann Swallow as Nat, Michelle Crain as Izzy, Teri Levy as Becca and Matt Ault as Jason. “Rabbit Hole” is directed by Doug Midkiff with assistant director Amy Sando, and produced by Christopher Willson.
