About The Rainmaker

The Rainmaker is a play that challenges us to take a leap of faith in unusual opportunities. It tells the story of a hot summer day amidst a drought where a plain girl named Lizzie has an ongoing struggle to find a husband. That night, a mysterious con-man named Starbuck shows up at the door of her family farm with the promise to conjure up rain in exchange for one hundred dollars. Despite his claim seeming like a scam, Starbuck is able to win over Lizzie and her family in unexpected ways.
