Theatre on the Bay will present six performances of the Craig Lucas comedy “Reckless” starting this week in Herbert L. Williams Theatre on the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, Marinette Campus.

Performance are at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 15-16; 2 p.m. Nov. 17; 7:30 p.m. Nov. 22-23; and 2 p.m. Nov. 24. Info: tinyurl.com/theatreonthebay.

A cast from Michigan and Wisconsin is directed by Theatre on the Bay artistic director Rebecca Stone Thornberry.

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).
