A Steady Rain
By Keith Huff
Jan. 24 – Feb. 2, 2013
All performances at 8PM
Joey and Denny are childhood best friends who also happen to be partners on their job with the Chicago Police Department. They lean on each other in other ways as well: Joey helps out with Denny’s family; Denny keeps Joey away from his many vices.
When a routine domestic disturbance call turns in to something much more frightening and tragic, the aftermath sends the two on a harrowing journey where friendship and loyalty are tested, and lives will be forever changed.
“Huff tells the story of a relationship of almost biblical intensity, and one riddled with love, loyalty, guilt, shame, rage and a sort of primal inevitability…Superbly rendered, often deeply poetic.”
– Chicago Sun Times
“a thoroughly engrossing examination of the toll the job takes on those sworn to serve and protect, and how amorphous the line between criminal and cop can be.”
– Daily Herald
