BSA presents ‘A Steady Rain’ on Jan. 18, 19, 25, 26
Bellevue Society for the Arts presents the drama, “A Steady Rain” by Keith Huff, Fridays and Saturdays, January 18, 19, 25 and 26 at 7:30 p.m. at 205 Maple St.
A powerful play featuring a mere cast of two, “A Steady Rain” is a dark duologue exploring the complexities of a lifelong bond tainted by domestic affairs, violence and the rough streets of Chicago.
Joey and Denny have been best friends since grade school, and after working together as policemen, they are practically family: Joey (Luke A. Siegel-Schaefer, Bellevue) helps out with Denny’s wife and kids; Denny (Ethan Mandeville, Sandusky) keeps Joey away from the bottle. When a domestic disturbance call takes a turn for the worse, their friendship is put on the line. The result is a harrowing journey into a moral gray area where trust and loyalty struggle for survival.
The play alternates between two separate monologues and present-moment dialogue scenes. It contains mature subject matter and explicit language. Admission will be restricted to adults 18 and over only.
The 2009 Broadway production starring Daniel Craig and Hugh Jackman was voted one of the top 10 plays of the year by Time Magazine and dubbed a “a gritty, rich, thick, poetic and entirely gripping tale,” by the Chicago Tribune.
“A Steady Rain” is being performed in the lobby of the theatre building. It will be presented ‘in-the-round,’ a format in which the audience surrounds the performance area. This brings the audience into the same space as the actors, allowing for strong and direct engagement.
Tickets for “A Steady Rain” are on sale now. Call 419–484-ARTS (2787). Seating is limited.
“A Steady Rain” is directed by Brad Rowe, Bellevue. Nancy Steyer, Tifﬁn, serves as Assistant Director. It is presented through special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
