Newnan Theatre Company announces auditions for the Pulitzer Prize winning drama “Rabbit Hole,” written by David Lindsay-Abaire and directed by Bert Lyons.

Auditions will be held at Newnan Theatre Company, located at 24 1st Ave., Newnan. Audition dates are Tuesday, Dec. 11, and Wednesday, Dec. 12 at 7 p.m. Production dates are Feb. 14, 15, 16, 17, 21, 22, 23, and 24.

In a comfortable suburban home, five ordinary people each find ways to live on and through the death of a young boy in a car accident: a mother and father, a sister, a grandmother and the teenage boy who drove the car. Told with humor, drama and engaging characters, it is a story of loss, heartbreak and forgiveness, told through daily moments of joy and pain as the family moves on.

This show contains mature content.
