The acclaimed production of Keith Huff’s award-winning Broadway hit A Steady Rain transfers to the Fugard Studio Theatre, following a sold-out season at the Alexander Bar, from Tuesday 4 to Saturday 29 October.

Brent Palmer and Nicholas Pauling star in this gritty, rich and gripping noir tale of two Chicago police officers whose inner need to serve and protect both consumes them and rips them apart.

The play is directed by Adrian Collins and Pauling and Collins were both nominated for Fleur du Cap awards this year, for Best Actor and Best New Director respectively.

A Steady Rain takes the audience on a relentless journey. Using razor-sharp story-telling, writer Keith Huff weaves the perspectives of two Chicago police officers, Joey and Denny, into a harrowing story of long time partners and best friends, Joey and Denny. Joey struggles with alcohol while he secretly obsesses over Denny’s wife. Denny meanwhile is resentful, aggressive and a racist cheater. During the course of the compelling and devastating narrative, the audience is kept white-knuckled right until the moment the lights go down.V Tickets range from R130 to R150 and can be booked through Computicket or at the Fugard Theatre box office on 021 461 4554.
