A dark duologue filled with sharp storytelling and biting repartee, "A Steady Rain" explores the complexities of a lifelong bond tainted by domestic affairs, violence, and the rough streets of Chicago.
Joey (Jeremy Geiger) and Denny (Dale Sams) have been best friends since kindergarten and, after working together for several years as policemen in Chicago, they are 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 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" opened on Broadway in 2009 with Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig in the lead roles.
