Rabbit Hole is a play written by David-Lindsay Abaire. It was the recipient of the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The play deals with the ways family members survive a major loss, and includes comedy as well as drama. At the age of twenty-six, the playwright was challenged by a professor to write a play about something of which he was scared. He couldn’t think of anything that scared him.

That rock, sporting a new logo designed by park staff, welcomes the approximately 50,000 visitors a year to the state park which, itself, is undergoing a transformation. Prior to the current drought over half of the park visitors were fishermen attracted to the annual white bass run which usually starts about this time of year.
