Performing Arts presents Reckless: A Dark Comedy

Thursday, November 20 – Saturday, November 22 at 7:30 p.m.
Sunday, November 23 at 2 p.m.
All performances will be held in Hayes Auditorium
FREE for Lees-McRae Students, Faculty and Staff

At home on Christmas Eve, Rachel is informed by her guilty husband that he has hired a hitman 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.
