The Goodman Theatre’s world premiere production of Rebecca Gilman’s “Luna Gale,” directed by Robert Falls, opens Tuesday, December 2 at 8 p.m. at the Center Theatre Group / Kirk Douglas Theatre. The production continues through December 21st 2014.

The cast, who originated their roles in Chicago, includes Jordan Baker, Reyna de Courcy, Melissa DuPrey, Mary Beth Fisher, Erik Hellman, Colin Sphar and Richard Thieriot.

Gilman, whose “work reaches the heart and head with equal force,” according to Time magazine, explores with profound humanity the issues of faith, family and one child’s uncertain future.

A veteran social worker, Caroline, thinks she has a typical case on her hands when she meets Peter and Karlie, two teenage drug addicts accused of neglecting their baby, Luna Gale. But when Caroline places their daughter in the care of Karlie’s very religious mother, she sparks a family conflict that exposes a shadowy past and forces her to make a risky decision with potentially life-altering consequences.

Set design for “Luna Gale” is by Todd Rosenthal, costumes by Kaye Voce, lighting by Robert Wierzel and original music and sound design by Richard Woodbury. The production stage manager is Kirsten Parker.
