B Street Theatre Presents A STEADY RAIN on B3 Stage, Now thru 6/15
The B Street Theatre is pleased to present A Steady Rain, Keith Huff's dark duologue exploring the complexities of a lifelong bond tainted by domestic affairs, violence, and the rough streets of Chicago. A Steady Rain runs from today, May 17 to June 15.
Joey and Denny have been best friends since kindergarten, and after working together for several years as policemen in Chicago, they are practically family. 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 is currently writing the film adaptation of A Steady Rain for Barbara Brocolli (EON Films), an original screenplay Kill Switch for Alexandra Milchan (EMJAG Films), the cable series Why We Fight for Steven Spielberg/Dreamworks TV and AMC, and just completed a Season 4 stint as Writer/Co-Producer for AMC's Emmy- and Golden Globe Award-winning series Mad Men, for which he won a 2011 Writers Guild Award (Best Drama Series). He is currently a Writer/Producer for the NetFlix series House of Cards.
The cast includes Kurt Johnson as Denny and Dave Pierini as Joey. Direction is by Lyndsay Burch, scenic design by Samantha Reno, lighting design by Ron Madonia, and stage management by Megan West.
