Imaginary Comforts

Berkeley Rep

Imaginary Comforts, or The Story of the Ghost of the Dead Rabbit. By Daniel Handler; directed by Tony Taccone. 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.


This is what SF/Arts curator Jean Schiffman had to say about Imaginary Comforts :

San Francisco novelist Daniel Handler, aka Lemony Snicket, wrote this play for adults; it promises to be funny, serious and (as befits the creator of the unfortunate Baudelaires) twisted. Developed at Berkeley Rep, it’s directed by Tony Taccone. There’s a bereaved mother and daughter, the ghost of a bunny (comic genius Danny Scheie) and other characters. Cast includes Sharon Lockwood, Marilee Talkington, Jarion Monroe and Julian Lopez-Morillas.
