    A Steady Rain

    A Steady Rain tells the story of two Chicago police officers in the aftermath of a harrowing event. It is soon clear they each have slightly differing accounts of how the event played out. The play is a duologue with both characters always on stage, inhabiting the same space (an interrogation room) at different times. A true story inspires the crux of the play. Issues of friendship, loyalty, substance abuse, racism, fidelity, and violence abound in this piece, ranked number two on Time Magazine’s “Ten Best Plays of 2009.”

    Kenneth Wayne Bradley (multiple B. I.P. and A.C.T. Award nominee and winner) plays Denny, a frustrated and outspoken family man. Denny feels cheated out of his hard-earned American dream, and blurs the lines between wrong and right while striving further toward that dream.

    Tom Green (2011 B. Iden Payne Award nominee for Best Actor) plays Joey, an alcoholic who battles his own morality as he witnesses his partner & best friend’s slide toward the wrong side of the law. Each man struggles with saving what he loves most while not losing himself in the process.

    Melissa Livingston-Weaver (B. Iden Payne Award Winner 2003, Nominee 2012) directs.

    PRAISE FOR A STEADY RAIN

    "a gritty, rich, thick, poetic and entirely gripping noir tale.” —Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune

    “…Huff's taut, tough-minded script…takes potentially clichéd material — the moral challenges faced by cops on the urban mean streets — and makes it fresh and compelling.” –Richard Zoglin, Time Magazine

    “…less like the perpetual drizzle of its title and more like a snowball that builds to an avalanche.” –Steve Oxman, Variety
