Goodman Theatre Artistic Director Robert Falls directs this gripping world-premiere drama from Rebecca Gilman, whose work “reaches the heart and head with equal force” (Time).
Caroline, a veteran social worker, thinks she has a typical case on her hands when she meets Peter and Karlie, two teenaged drug addicts accused of neglecting their baby (Luna Gale). But when she places their infant daughter in the care of Karlie’s mother, Caroline sparks a family conflict that exposes a shadowy, secretive past—and forces her to make a risky decision with potentially life-altering consequences. Powerful and arresting, Luna Gale is an unforgettable tale of faith and forgiveness.
