CHESTER and MIDLOTHIAN, Va. – Lights, camera, action! John Tyler Community College’s Theatre Workshop students are about to take to the stage for their fall production. This semester, the class is taking on Reckless by Craig Lucas. This dark comedy tells the story of Rachel, a woman who is forced to flee her home on Christmas Eve after her husband admits that he’s hired a hit man to kill her. Her escape leads her on a wild adventure in which she meets unusual people, wins $100,000 on a TV game show, takes part in several escapades involving numerous psychiatrists, and ends up questioning the world’s motivations. Reckless is being directed by Kerrigan Sullivan, associate professor of communication studies and theatre at John Tyler, and is being produced by special arrangement with Dramatist Play Services.
Performances will be held in the Nicholas Student Center at the College’s Chester Campus, 13101 Jefferson Davis Highway, on December 10, 2010 and December 11, 2010 at 7:00 p.m. and on December 12, 2010 at 3:00 p.m. All shows are free and open to the community. For more information, contact Kerrigan Sullivan at email@example.com or 804-594-1498. Directions to the College may be found online at www.jtcc.edu/locations.
