      A Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, David Lindsay-Abaire's work for the stage ran the gamut from serious fare such as the Tony-winning "Rabbit Hole," which dealt with the loss of a child, to the book and lyrics for the cartoonish "Shrek the Musical." Along the way, he also carved an inroad into screenwriting, writing the scripts for "Inkheart" (2007) and the film version of "Rabbit Hole" (2010), which received near-universal praise. Lindsay-Abaire's plays centered around the tension and the laughter that arose from awkward, even absurd situations - in his "Fuddy Mears," a woman's amnesia requires her to rely on her family to tell her what she has done the day before - and found an enthusiastic audience for his unique blend of screwball comedy and drama. His script for "Rabbit Hole" served as a calling card for his inevitable status as one of Hollywood's most in-demand writers.
