April 02, 2015: "Reckless," a play by Craig Lucas The Department of Theatre at Ohio State Lima presents "Reckless," a play by Craig Lucas. "Reckless" follows the journey of Rachel, a young wife and mother forced to flee her cozy home on Christmas Eve when she receives some surprising news from her husband. Like Alice in "Alice in Wonderland," Rachel continually tries to make sense of the strange things that keep happening to her (especially on Christmas, her favorite holiday) and the unusual people she meets, only to eventually realize that sometimes, "things just happen!" Funny, quirky, a little absurd, a little sad, a bit dark, but ultimately hopeful, "Reckless" is a fractured fairy-tale of one woman’s quest to find some stability (and herself) in a reckless world.
