According to a press release: “Reckless” is a wild ride across multiple Christmases as Rachel (Allison Caves, Porterfield) discovers what happens when you lose – and find – yourself.
Rachel finds out that her husband, Tom (Noah Steffen, Menominee, Mich.), has hired a hitman to kill her on Christmas Eve, and she runs for her life.
Taken in by kind-hearted Lloyd (Glenn Sellen, Sobieski), and his paraplegic wife, Pooty (Cassidy MacArthur, Menominee, Mich.), Rachel becomes an honorary member of a new family. But she soon discovers that her new friends and new life are not what they seem.
The cast also includes actors in multiple roles: Tyrus Cretens (Marinette) as Roy, First Doctor, First Derelict and the Receptionist; Kenan Pulver (Menominee, Mich.) as the Second and Fifth Doctors; Gary Scholz Sr. (Menominee, Mich.) as the Fourth Doctor; Patrick Mines (Peshtigo) as Game Show Host Tim Timko; Avery Katzbeck (Marinette) as Trish and Talk Show Host; Journey Sundberg as Sue, Woman Patient, Third Doctor and Second Derelict; and Catie Kramer (Lena) as the Sixth Doctor.
The production staff includes scenic and sound designer John Thornberry (Marinette), lighting designer Chris Weber (Crivitz) and costume designer Annalisa Mines (Peshtigo).
