Subject: Dark "Holiday" Comedy with Twists & Turns
If you're looking for something a little different in your holiday entertainment this season, RECKLESS just might work for you.
Director, Hank Stratton, says of RECKLESS: "The audience should expect a dark, farcical comedy, plenty of twists and turns, and unlikely events—an evening where they themselves are in Rachel’s snow globe, upended by the whims and repeated shakes of Mr. Lucas’ fantastical comedy."

UA’s Arizona Repertory Theatre presents RECKLESS
by Craig Lucas | directed by Hank Stratton
TUCSON, AZ - On a snowy Christmas Eve, Rachel discovers her husband has hired a hitman to kill her, sending her out the window and into an unusual series of misadventures that include multiple identities, murder and game shows. Joining forces along the way with a humanitarian and his paraplegic wife, Rachel must reconcile the balance between her inexhaustible optimism and the world’s unavoidable realities. Leaving no Christmas celebration unscathed, playwright Craig Lucas blurs the lines between fantasy and reality in a dark comedy that speaks to love, loss, and the indefatigable hope of the human heart.
“Working with the students of ART at the University of Arizona is once again a great pleasure,” said guest director, Hank Stratton. The deep talent in the BFA program is unmistakable, and my task as guest director is to maintain the company’s professional standards, providing the students with a first-rate production to showcase their extraordinary talents.” Stratton added that he is extremely fortunate to be working with brilliant lighting and scenic designers, since without them, he and the cast would not be able to present the professional quality that Tucson audiences have come to expect.
