Reckless – Elf & Safety gone mad!

By Craig Lucas

At Assembly Roxy 6-9 December 2017.

Christmas – It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Or is it?

Rachel certainly used to think so. At least she did until her husband Tom confesses on Christmas Eve that it isn’t Santa Claus she hears breaking in but a hitman he’s hired to kill her.

So she better run. Now!

And run she does, plunging herself into a labyrinth of murder, embezzlement, faked disabilities, game shows and a never-ending stream of psychiatrists. In the end, will Rachel survive this pitch black comedy by Craig Lucas? And more importantly will her love of Christmas?

Craig Lucas’ Reckless has oft been likened to falling down a festive rabbit hole, and Grimes’ in the round staging will give audiences a front row seat to the bedlam of this black comedy. An immersive theatrical experience with elves, carols and snow: Reckless will be the first gift of your Christmas.
