THE STORY: 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. 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 harrowing journey into a moral gray area where trust and loyalty struggle for survival against a sobering backdrop of pimps, prostitutes, and criminal lowlifes.
"Keith Huff's A Steady Rain offers one of the most powerful theatrical experiences in many seasons." - Backstage
**Seá's Night - A Special Needs Performance: A Special Needs Performance is just that! A performance of our current production but tailored for older teens (16 yrs - 19 yrs) & Adults with special needs and their families, friends and/or caregivers. Maybe you are on "The Spectrum", or have sensitivity to loud music or sounds, or a sensitivity to strobe lights, or you cant sit for long periods of time, or you have uncontrollable vocal outbursts, or you are not able to sit in close proximity to others, or you are a mother of an infant with no child care and you just need a night out of the house, or, or, or...this is the performance for you!
"Seá's Night" is named after Artistic Directors, Alanna Romansky & Sean Derry's daughter, Seá (Shay) Derry. She has Rett Syndrome and sitting still for long periods of time is very difficult. Interjecting vocally when some would think is inappropriate, is not controllable for Seá because of the side effects of Rett. Sean & Alanna's other children enjoy attending shows as well as helping backstage and even on stage at times, but Seá has not been able to attend any none too fragile shows, until NOW!
(Due to the nature of some special needs of our "Seá's Night" patrons, seating is very limited and ONLY for those with actual special needs and their families & friends who are attending the performance with them.)
All profits from "Seá's Night" performances are donated to Rett Syndrome Research Trust, which is a not-for-profit research group dedicated to finding a cure for Rett Syndrome.
