Happy Thursday everyone.
What happens when one individual is given the power to decide the fate of a family? Rebecca Gilman’s “Luna Gale,” directed for Peppermint Creek by Jordan Climie, grapples with this very question. When 6-month-old Luna Gale is taken away from her meth-addicted parents by Child Protective Services, she is put in the care of her fanatically religious grandmother and thrown into a whirlwind of misunderstandings, blind spots and biases. 8 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, 2 p.m. Sunday. $15/$10 students and seniors. Miller Performing Arts Center, 6025 Curry Lane, Lansing. (517) 927-3016, peppermintcreek.org.
