A Public Fit Theatre Company is pleased to announce the showing of A Steady Rain by Keith Huff, throughout the month of February at The Usual Place, located at 100 S. Maryland Pkwy. Directed by Erik Amblad, the crime thriller is based on real-life events of the Chicago Police Department in the 1990’s.
“It is an honor to produce and stage A Steady Rain at A Public Fit,” said Ann-Marie Pereth, Artistic Director of A Public Fit Theatre Company. “As our first production of 2020, we are proud to bring a rich story centered around the love between two friends and the messy realities that can threaten that bond to our viewers. The talent in this play, on and off stage, is superb and we look forward to engaging with our audience yet again in an impactful manner.”
Friends since childhood, Joey and Denny have grown to become policemen in Chicago. Together, they face domestic affairs, violence, and the mean streets. Their loyalty, friendship, and trust is tested when a domestic disturbance call takes a turn for the worse.
In the role of Denny will be Christopher Brown who was a Blue Man with the Blue Man Group for fourteen years and performed all over the world. Brown has also appeared on stages in New York, Nashville, Chicago, Washington D.C. and Las Vegas with companies including Nashville Shakespeare Festival, Jean Cocteau Repertory and Cockroach Theatre. Joey will be portrayed by Mark Gorman, who appeared onstage with A Public Fit as Hans in Tinker. Prior to his debut in Las Vegas, Gorman spent six years as the artistic director of South of Broadway Theatre Company and has performed in and directed over a dozen plays.
The premiere showing of A Steady Rain is Friday, February 7 at The Usual Place and starts promptly at 7:30 pm. The production will show from February 7 until February 23, with both evening and matinee times offered. For more information and to buy tickets, visit apublicfit.org.
