The Rainmaker

by Richard Nash, directed by Eileen Schuyler

February 11, 12, 13, 2011 (Fri.-Sun.)
The blazing heat of a rural town in the Depression-era American West provides the setting for Nash’s 1954 classic. The Currie men are more worried about their sister Lizzie’s dim marriage prospects than about their dying cattle. When a confidence trickster named Starbuck arrives, promising rain for $100, a series of events are set in motion that enable Lizzie to see herself in a new light. Translated into over 40 languages, this captivating play was made into both a renowned film and a musical, 110 in the Shade.
