Denny and Joey, two of Chicago's less-than-finest cops, have forged a lifelong bond on the rough streets of the Windy City. A Steady Rain captures the buddy duo at a time when their friendship, their badges and Denny's family come under fire as the result of a domestic disturbance call gone bad. When the horrific truth of the situation is revealed, one of them must take the blame for a fatal mistake. Jeff Perry, co-founder of Chicago's legendary Steppenwolf Theatre Company, directs this riveting drama that reveals the flaws and humanity of two lifelong friends doomed by their tragic fates.

saw it on preview night, a couple of missed cues and lighting that needs improvement. however, the play itself is smartly written and refreshing. great acting by all, conversations had an easy natural flow - didn't feel contrived or preachy. characters were endearing. my friend and I were among the few younger audience members yet we related to the stories and the journeys. it provided mature and emotionally intelligent insight to middle age. we recommend the show : )
Growing older doesn’t always mean growing wiser. Harriet (Jane Kaczmarek) is a widow and single mother; Nina (Diane Cary) has left her actor husband to escape the shadow of his celebrity; and twice-divorced Meg (Sharon Sharth) has been navigating the single world for ten years. These women, and the men in their lives, take a journey of self-discovery, stopping along the way to examine the gray areas of marriage and divorce, want and need, sexual ambiguity and dating in the age of online matchmaking.
Running time is 90 minutes.
