theater masksThe Woburn Repertory Community Theater invites you to join them for their inaugural season of the finest theater in our area. In the opening season they are bringing you a Pulitzer Prize Winning play by the brilliant playwright David Lindsay-Abaire, "Rabbit Hole". The first showing will take place at the Woburn Memorial High School Auditorium on Oct. 11th and 12th.

Rabbit Hole deals with the most traumatic event any parent can endure - the death of a child. David Lindsay-Abaire manages to involve his audience in the grieving process and illustrate how we all grieve differently and for different lengths of time. Despite the subject matter, this 2007 Pulitzer Prize-winning play is often extremely funny, setting up emotional contrasts between ironic humor and infinite sadness which make the loss of the child more poignant, without dissolving into bathos.
