Reckless Abandon

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 marks the 60th anniversary of ‘Operation Auca’ and an inspiring story of love, forgiveness and fearless faith.

4Front Theatre are excited to present ‘Reckless Abandon,’ a feature-length stage adaptation of this incredible true story.

The show is approximately 1 hr 45 (including a 15 minute interval), and is suitable for all ages, but is primarily aimed at 12+ audiences.

Reckless Abandon enjoyed a successful tour from 2016-2017 and will be on the road again in late 2018 - if you’d be interested in hosting this production please drop us an email:
