THE RECKLESS SEASON
by Lauren Ferebee
Directed by Dominic D'Andrea
April 21st-May 7th at TheaterLab
It's 2008 in small town USA, and there is nothing Norman Rockwell about it. Simon's returned home after two tours in Iraq to find his alcoholic mother dead by suicide and his younger brother, Terry, strangely obsessed with an early-90s videogame about ancient Sparta. Between Terry, Terry's truck stop co-worker, Lisa, and Flynn, their mother's co-dependent former drug dealer, Simon's dream of peace and quiet quickly evaporates. Wrestling with the aftermath of death, and realization that no one knows what comes next, these four Americans grasp toward adulthood in a place they dream of leaving.

Loveless Texas is a traditional book musical, with a score in a variety of traditional Americana styles, encompassing Texas swing, bluegrass, blues, Cajun waltz and two-step, and cowboy yodels. It is a fun, joyous, affirmative celebration of the power of love and the human spirit to prevail over hardship.
