LUNA GALE by Rebecca Gilman

2015 Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award Winner
Directed by Michael Stevenson
October 18 – November 19, 2017

Caroline Cox has been working in the Department of Human Services for twenty-five years. She thinks troubled teenagers Peter and Karlie, the parents of newborn Luna Gale, are a typical case. But she discovers an array of unspoken motives amongst all the parties with an interest in Luna’s future. With events accelerating and Caroline uncovering more of the truth, her conclusions begin to look startlingly unconventional – even to her.  

Luna Gale is marvelous… it is perhaps the best show of the year.” 
Sacramento Press

“Amy Resnick gives a remarkable performance…”

“Acting shines in thoughtful look at child-custody battle.”
Davis Enterprise

“Tautly-staged ‘Luna Gale’ hinges on conflict between fairness and law.”
Capital Public Radio

“Rebecca Gilman makes it clear that she won’t shy away from the uncomfortable, ugly aspects of society … Yet, depite its heavy nature, one can easily leave this production fleeing hopeful for humanity.”
Voices: River City

“LUNA GALE [is] one of this year’s most valuable additions to American drama.”  
The Los Angeles Times
