A Steady Rain
By Keith Huff
Directed by Nick Violante
Joey and Denny 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 powerful show featuring a mere cast of two, A Steady Rain is filled with sharp storytelling and biting repartee, exploring the complexities of a lifelong bond tainted by domestic affairs, violence and the rough streets of Chicago. The 2009 Broadway production starring Daniel Craig and Hugh Jackman was voted one of the top 10 plays of the year by Time Magazine and dubbed a “a gritty, rich, thick, poetic and entirely gripping tale,” by the Chicago Tribune. Now, this modern noir thriller comes to Renegade.
Now that DINK TANK: RETURN OF THE DINKS is up and running, we wanted to take a moment to announce the cast list for our upcoming productions of Tennessee Williams’ SUMMER & SMOKE and THE ECCENTRICITIES OF A NIGHTINGALE. It’s a great cast, and we can’t wait to see how they tackle these two plays in repertory!

We’re going to be pretty busy the next few days in tech for DINK TANK: RETURN OF THE DINKS, which opens next week! So, we thought we’d give you an extra-special advent gift to get you over the next few days. It’s one of the things we are most proud of, as a sketch troupe. If you haven’t seen it yet, take a few minutes and enjoy a shirtless Jody Kujawa, a bongo drum circle, and some dressing-down of “Wolverine” fans.
We’ll be back on Monday with some more sneak peeks at the show, and we’ll see you at the theater on December 8th at 8pm!
