Desperate to protect her daughter -- and to keep her from being "recalled" by the government in order to be cured of her psychopathic impulses -- single mom Justine is on the run with teenage Lucy. Seeking safety in this dystopian near future is no easy task, so Justine and Lucy consider themselves lucky to wind up at a safe house run by a mysterious man named David. But it isn't long before hidden agendas and rising interests hurl these characters towards some decidedly dark and drastic consequences. Hailed during its off-Broadway run as "twisty and tense" by The New York Times, and "entertaining and unsettling" by New York Magazine, Recall now makes its West Coast premiere at the Lex Theatre.

Great!! Show was very well cast, performances were exceptional from all the actors. Shows how we can all be taken in by someone's sob story, aiding them by giving money, shelter, and everything we have, all the while having your own job and family problems. Scenic design was exceptional, made me feel as though it were really someone's home. Recommend you see this show!
The Young Man from Atlanta
by Horton Foote
Directed by: August Viverito
Starring: Dick DeCoit, Eileen Barnett and Hap Lawrence
1950 -- a comfortable suburb of Houston. The well-upholstered fortress of the Kidders' lives is suddenly under siege, and from a number of directions. In the play's first scene, Will Kidder loses his job of many years, just as he's sunk a bundle into a new house. And he and his wife Lily Dale have yet to come to terms with the death of their 37-year-old son and only child, Bill, who lived in Atlanta and drowned during a business trip to Florida.
Since Bill couldn't swim, the death was a mystery. Probably a suicide. Why? His mother and father don't have a clue. But the young man of the play's title, who was Bill's roommate and who is never actually seen, has words of comfort for the parents, if they choose to listen.
