(Black PR Wire) RABBIT SUMMER plays a limited engagement at Mile Square Theatre (1400 Clinton St. Hoboken, NJ 07030) beginning Wednesday, March 6 through Saturday, March 30th. Tickets are $35-$50 and available at milesquaretheatre.org.
In RABBIT SUMMER Wilson Faison (Steven St. Pierre) idealizes marriage and family, ignoring the controversy of his job as a police officer in the shadow of Black Lives Matter. His wife, Ruby (Ricki Lynée*), wishes he would share versus smiling through pain. Tired of feeling helpless and trapped in her Huxtable-like existence, she has a secret plan. And that plan may just fix the American gun problem while breaking her husband out of his shell.
Ruby's best friend, Claire (Tsebiyah Mishael Derry*), takes refuge at the Faison home after suffering a tragedy. Her visit unearths secrets, old and new, and stirring a pot of reality Wilson has never tasted.

The production features scenic design by Matthew Fick, costume design by Allison Essanason, and lighting design by Nina Agelvis. Arielle Legere* is the Production Stage Manager.
