Joey and Denny have been best friends since kindergarten, and after working together for several years as policemen in Chicago, they are practically family: Joey helps out with Denny’s wife and kids; Denny keeps Joey away from the bottle. But when a domestic disturbance call takes a turn for the worse, their friendship is put on the line. The result is a difficult journey into a moral gray area where trust and loyalty struggle for survival against a sobering backdrop of pimps, prostitutes, and criminal lowlives.
A dark duologue filled with sharp storytelling and biting repartee, A Steady Rain explores the complexities of a lifelong bond tainted by domestic affairs, violence, and the rough streets of Chicago.
Featuring Matthew Schofield and Shawn Crapo.
Lighting Design by Tomer Oz.
Stage Management: Lindsey Greene and Jordan Formichelli.
“Characteristic of Chicagoland theater at its gritty, no-nonsense best…An irresistibly forceful exercise in noir-style tandem storytelling.”
