DM Playhouse's Play Reading Series to Continue with A STEADY RAIN, 7/7
The Des Moines Community Playhouse play reading series presents Keith Huff's "A Steady Rain," 7:00 PM, Monday, July 7. The evening is free; beverages will be available for purchase.
Joey and Denny have been best friends since kindergarten. After working together for several years as policemen, they have become 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 suddenly 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.
"A Steady Rain" is directed by Melissa Kellar. The cast features John Robinson and Shawn Wilson.
The play reading series is held one night each month on the stage in the theatre's upper lobby. Actors read from scripts; there are no costumes or scenery pieces. The goal of the play reading series is to offer audiences and volunteers an opportunity to familiarize themselves with upcoming productions, as well as offer insight into new scripts and possible titles to be mounted in the future.
The Playhouse is Iowa's oldest and largest producing theatre. Located at the 42nd Street exit of I-235, the theatre has presented a full season of shows since 1919 and also offers a wide variety of educational experiences including classes for ages 4 to adult, theatre trips to New York, and volunteer opportunities onstage and backstage.
