Rebecca Gilman's play continues through Dec. 21 at the Kirk Douglas Theatre.

Directed by Robert Falls, the cast features Jordan Baker, Reyna de Courcy, Melissa Duprey, Mary Beth Fisher, Erik Hellman, Colin Sphar and Richard Thieriot.

Here's how the production is billed: "A veteran social worker, Caroline, thinks she has a typical case on her hands when she meets Peter and Karlie, two teenage drug addicts accused of neglecting their baby, Luna Gale. But when Caroline places their daughter in the care of Karlie’s very religious mother, she sparks a family conflict that exposes a shadowy past and forces her to make a risky decision with potentially life-altering consequences."

Set design for Luna Gale is by Todd Rosenthal, costumes are by Kaye Voce, lighting is by Robert Wierzel, and original music and sound design are by Richard Woodbury. The production stage manager is Kirsten Parker.

The world-premiere production of Luna Gale opened at the Goodman Theatre in January.

Gilman's plays include A True History of the Johnston Flood, Boy Gets Girl, Spinning Into Butter and Blue Surge.

The Kirk Douglas Theatre is located at 9820 Washington Blvd. in Culver City. Visit centertheatregroup.org for more information.
