Fantastic Z, Seattle’s latest LGBTQ focused theater company, has just opened a new production just in time for the holiday season as they present Craig Lucas’ RECKLESS now through December 20, 2014 at the lovely Annex Theatre (11th & Pike, upstairs; entrance on 11th). It’s the season opener for their 2014/15 season.

Tickets are $10 – $15 online or $20 at the door an hour before show time at 7pm with a special PWYC Industry Night Tuesday December 9th.

What’s the crazy story?

At home on Christmas Eve, Rachel is informed by her guilty husband that he has hired a hit man to kill her, and she must flee for her life—which she does by scrambling out the kitchen window and into the snowy night. She meets and joins up with Lloyd Bophtelophti, a true “original” who has changed his name to avoid alimony payments and who now lives with a paraplegic named Pootie (who also pretends to be deaf in order to get double disability). Rachel then wins $100,000 on a TV game show and begins a series of picaresque escapades involving numerous psychiatrists and, eventually, an ill-fated reunion with her husband. In the end, Rachel becomes a therapist herself, treating her own child (who fails to recognize her) and is led more and more to ponder whether the modern world might not be a vast conspiracy designed to systematically undermine her own increasingly shaky sanity.

SGS is the Media Sponsor for this production….We love a good dysfunctional holiday romance!
