Spooky Action Theater Company opens its ninth season with a bittersweet fable of our time. Written by Craig Lucas in 1983, Reckless is a darkly comic tale of a modern-day Alice in a perilous winter wonderland. Performances will begin with a special Pay-What-You-Can performance on October 4 and run through October 28.
On Christmas Eve, a cheery suburban mom, Rachel, is suddenly thrust through the looking glass on a journey where nothing is what it seems, and where absurdity, generosity, laughter and despair go hand in hand before reaching a place where it is always Christmas.
Directed by Artistic Director Richard Henrich the production features popular Washington actors including Mundy Spears, as Rachel, Hilary Kacser and Jim Zidar.
This season, the stage has been reconfigured to allow set designer JD Madsen more flexibility in transforming the space. Zachary A. Dalton provides the lighting design, David Crandall sound and Lynly Saunders costumes.
