Red Turnip Presents Rabbit Hole as Second Season Opener

Wazzup Pilipinas!

During the interview at the press launch, I asked Topper Fabregas if he is now aiming for a Gawad Buhay awards this time as he directs Red Turnip Theater's David Lindsay-Abaire's 2007 Pulitzer Prize winning play entitled Rabbit Hole as its initial offering for the second season,  and he laugh out loud for he knew it was meant as a joke and followed it with "After that speech, I don't think I will nominated ever." Lol!

Topper was one of the presentors during the Gawad Buhay Awards night held a few days ago at the Cultural Center of the Philippines and sort of took the moment to express his bitterness towards the panel of judges who chose the nominated actors and actresses because of the fact that he was not nominated for an award. Of course we knew he was joking so we had a huge laugh during that night.

Now, during our "speed dating" interview after the cast made an initial introduction to themselves and the season opener, they alternately transferred from one table to the next so members of the media would have a chance to do more intimate interviews on a two artists per table procedure.

The second season presscon was held last June 16, 2014 at the 2nds restaurant located at Bonifacio Global City, and was partially sponsored by Fila Philippines.

Rabbit Hole is about husband and wife Howie (Williams) and Becca (Isidro) who have everything they could want, until a life-shattering accident turns their world upside down, and leaves the couple drifting perilously apart. Becca, who must also cope with the distractions of her reckless sister Izzy (Ramos-Cosio) and their opinionated mother Nat (Francisco), takes solace in her unlikely friendship with a neighborhood teenager Jason (Pesigan), who might provide the key to lead her back from the darkest of places.

The band of five actors that make up Red Turnip (Ana Abad Santos, Topper Fabregas, Jenny Jamora, Cris Villonco and Rem Zamora)

Topper will be directing Rabbit Hole so I'm expecting it to be a real blast regardless of the theme of the show...But if you will take a look at the previous shows they had like Close and Cock, I'm betting Rabbit Hole will also be a sensational production.

Leading the production and stars of the show are Agot Isidro, Noni Buencamino, Michael Williams, Che Ramos-Cosio, Ross Pesigan, and Sheila Francisco, Ana Abad Santos, Jenny Jamora, Cris Villonco, Rem Zamora, and of course Topper Fabregas in his directional debut. Dulaang UP’s Ross Pesigan was not there but is said to be part of the cast also.

Rabbit Hole will premiere on Friday, August 1, and will run until Sunday, August 31, at Whitespace (2314 Don Chino Roces Ave., Makati City).
