Reckless Abandon is a feature length production (2hrs inc. 15 min interval) starring 10 actors.
For the Waodani people living deep in the Ecuadorian jungle, murder, revenge and death by spear were a way of life. In 1956, 10 missionaries launched 'Operation Auca' to share God's love with this previously unreached stone age tribe. Stepping into the jaws of death, the world watched on to see how the story would end.
2016 marked the 60th anniversary of 'Operation Auca.' Reckless Abandon is the stage adaptation of this inspiring true story of love, forgiveness and fearless faith.
In partnership with the MAF, 4Front Theatre are proud to present Reckless Abandon, the true and inspiring story of Elisabeth Elliot and the ‘Operation Anca’ missionaries.
11th – 23rd June 2018
There is a suggested age rating of 11+ on this production. While there is nothing inappropriate for viewing, it may just go over the heads of smaller children.
The production doesn’t have to cost anything at all! We suggest charging £5-£10 a ticket (£7 ideally), so with enough audience members you can completely cover the cost of the production, which is £1075 including travel expenses. Multiple performances are discounted so please get in touch for pricing.
Any monies raised over the cost of the production from ticket sales should be split between the church, MAF & 4Front Theatre.
We are delighted to be doing this tour in partnership with MAF, who were heavily involved in ‘Operation Auca’, as Nate Saint was a MAF pilot, and used a MAF plane to take the missionaries to the Waodani people. There will be a MAF representative with us at each performance and a table with information on about MAF & also 4Front Theatre.
