Camden — The Everyman Repertory Theatre will present its latest main stage production, “Rabbit Hole,” at the Camden Opera House, opening Saturday, Sept. 7, at 7 p.m. to run for three weekends.

“Rabbit Hole, “written by David Lindsay-Abaire, won the 2007 Pulitzer Prize and is one of the most perfectly written plays Paul Hodgson, Everyman’s artistic director, has said he has ever read.

“It takes an incredibly challenging subject and deals with it with passion, comedy and sadness. It’s a rollercoaster of laughter and tears, sometimes both at the same time,” he said.

The play is directed by visiting director Joseph Ritsch, who recently was appointed co-producing artistic director at Rep Stage in Columbia, Md. The production features Jennifer Hodgson (Camden), Andrea Itkin (Camden), Kari Luehman (Hope), Ryan Martin (Warren) and Paul Hodgson (Camden). Martin is a sophomore at Medomak High School and this is his first professional role.

The set was designed by Dan Dalrymple (Rockland) and the lights were designed by Brandon Koons (Thomaston). The director also specially commissioned original art work by Emma McDonnell and original music by Michael Perrie for the show.

Performances will be Saturdays and Sundays, Sept. 7, 8, 14, 15, 20 and 21; plus Friday, Sept. 20, all at 7 p.m. There will be a talkback Q&A session with the cast and crew on the second Saturday in the run, Sept. 14.

Tickets are $25, $20 if purchased in advance; student tickets are available for $10. Tickets are available online at everymanrep.org or by calling 236-0173; as well as at Owl and Turtle and HAV II in Camden, the Reading Corner in Rockland and BellaBooks in Belfast.
