A Steady Rain

Drama • Running Time: 90 mins
Written by Keith Huff | Directed by Adrian Collins | Starring Brent Palmer and Nick Pauling
Palmer and Pauling perform in this gritty, rich and entirely gripping noir tale of two Chicago police officers whose inner need to serve and protect both consumes them and rips them apart

Keith Huff's award-winning hit Broadway play “A Steady Rain” takes the audience on a gripping, relentless journey. Using razor-sharp story-telling, writer Keith Huff weaves the perspectives of two Chicago police officers, Joey and Denny, into a harrowing story. Long time partners and best friends, Joey and Denny have serious problems. Joey struggles with alcohol while he secretly obsesses over Denny's wife. Denny is resentful, aggressive and racist cheater. During the course of the compelling and devastating narrative, the audience is kept white-knuckled right until the moment the lights go down.
