Rachel has a problem. It's Christmas Eve and she is so happy, as she repeatedly tells her husband Tom. Suddenly, he reveals he has taken a contract out on her life. This is just the opening scene of Craig Lucas' Reckless, a modern day odyssey for a woman whose life has turned upside down, and stays that way. This remarkable dark comedy is a treat for the senses, inviting the audience to share laughter and pain in the most absurd yet oddly familiar circumstances.
