Imaginary Comforts, or The Story of the Ghost of the Dead Rabbit at the Berkeley Rep
October 5–November 19, 2017
By Daniel Handler
Directed by Tony Taccone
The genius behind Lemony Snicket brings his relentlessly mischievous style to a new play for adults. Sarah’s father is dead, her mother is in hysterics, and the new rabbi totally bungled the funeral. To further the absurdity, the ghost of a rabbit hops into her life, pushing her to confront her deepest issues. Fantastical and wise, hilarious and sobering, Imaginary Comforts celebrates ordinary people trying to make sense out of life in the midst of endless, comedic chaos. More Info
