A Steady Rain

Another UK Amateur Première

Sep 2nd to 9th 2017

A play by Keith Huff

 

On a rainy night on the wrong side of Chicago, two cops are called out to a domestic disturbance. Best friends since childhood, they are practically family; but, when things go bad, a lot more that friendship is put on the line.

“A Steady Rain” is a dark psychological drama by a writer best known for the TV series “House of Cards” and “American Crime”. It was played on Broadway in 2009 by Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig, and we are delighted to present the UK amateur premiere.

Full of tense exchanges and razor-wire dialogue, it’s a powerful piece of no-holds-barred theatre.

NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN UNDER 15

Press comment

“….less like the perpetual drizzle of its title and more like a snowball that builds to an avalanche… genuine dramatic power and a sense of true tragedy” Variety

“An exceptionally rich, gritty and emotional drama…” Chicago Tribune
