The audience is left to decide who is telling wha Two Chicago cops, friends since boyhood have their friendship tested to the limit when one of them seeks revenge on a local pimp. The audience is left to decide who is telling what truth although I think the "the" truth definitely falls on the side of Joey. The key is to have two tremendous actors and a strong director.

But even just reading this play kept me on the edge of my seat. The writing is hard-hitting and uncompromising. Hats off to author Keith Huff. This is a thrilling play.
A Steady Rain
Mar 02, Dave rated it liked it. The language of the play is wonderful and captures the feel of Chicago perfectly. The characters are tree dimensional, richly detailed and fully developed. This may be one of the rare good plays that is better suited to the movie theater than the stage. As compelling as the story is, the format, at least of the production I saw, of having just the two men in two chairs talking to the audience and to each other, usually in memory was too static.

There is a difference between theater and story-tell The language of the play is wonderful and captures the feel of Chicago perfectly. There is a difference between theater and story-telling. Worse, under the weight of the format that substitutes narration for drama, the play can seem preachy and a little pedantic.
A Steady Rain review – 'A tale of betrayal that keeps you guessing'
Sep 08, Emily rated it really liked it. The characters are well developed and the story is certainly an interesting one. I wasn't the biggest fan of it being a narrative rather than a play in the moment. I feel like it limits the productions considering how talented the actors need to be in order for it to really be a success. It's a challenge for actor and director alike, and I would love to see a production of it. Gripping story which kept the reader glued to the book. May 24, Jason rated it really liked it. While I liked this play, I can see why some people had a problem with it.
I can see it being very confusing as to who is speaking to whom and why-and when it's only a 2 person play that poses a challenge. Nov 12, Trent Zelazny rated it it was amazing. This two-man play has such amazing, raw power, I was moved to tears.
Been a while since something has done that. Feb 23, Erin rated it it was amazing.
Unbelievably compelling; it reads like a novel. Heart-breaking and amazing piece of work. Dec 04, Kristina Cole rated it really liked it. Gritty, dirty, compelling. Would love to see it staged some time, but it's probably a little ok, a lot ambitious for community theater.
Left Edge Theatre presents A Steady Rain
Lucas Ho rated it it was amazing Jan 31, Nahid rated it really liked it Nov 04, Jeff Wyndham rated it really liked it Feb 17, Even the design saves the biblical touches for the final moments, with Paul Wills's set simply offering two chairs in a black box, over which glowers a slab of grey concrete like a sky pressing down.
It is so neatly executed that it holds the attention, making it easy to forgive the fact that Huff's verbose script is sometimes in danger of drowning in its own gritty poetry. Box office: Venue: Theatre Royal Bath.
