The wildly-inventive comedy Reckless, by Craig Lucas, begins on Christmas Eve and centers on Rachel Fitzsimmons, a wife and mother, who is informed by her husband, Tom, that he has hired a gunman to shoot her that evening. Tom is remorseful, but there is nothing to be done and he pushes her out the window to flee the hired killer. Along her journey, Rachel encounters a dubious Good Samaritan, a disabled office worker who is not disabled, devious co-workers, multiple doctors, a game-show host, a talk-show host, and has an ill-fated reunion with her husband. You’ll root for Rachel as she fights her way through mistaken identities, comic death and absurd escapades to find her way back to her family and sanity.

“I consider Reckless an underappreciated comic masterpiece,” says director Kevin Gilmartin. “The story engages the audience in Rachel’s efforts to re-connect with the family she has lost while she repeatedly experiences holiday seasons gone awry. While the people Rachel meets are often extreme, they are oddly believable. The actors inject humanity in even the most outrageous characters.”
