A Steady Rain

Overview

A Steady Rain chronicles love and rage on the streets of Chicago where one ordinary day a deadly error of judgement sends the lives of two cops spinning out of control.

As the need to serve and protect both consumes the two cops, and rips them apart, trust and loyalty struggle for survival against a backdrop of pimps, prostitutes, and criminal lowlife.

A dark two-hander, filled with sharp storytelling and biting repartee, A Steady Rain opened on Broadway in 2009 starring Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig.

Keith Huff won a Writer’s Guild Award for Mad Men, wrote for the first season of House of Cards and has also written the film adaptation of A Steady Rain for Barbara Brocolli’s EON Films.

Director David Grindley’s numerous credits include, recently, Daytona, Journey’s End in the West End and The Philanthropist on Broadway. He also directed the hugely-acclaimed production of The American Plan in the Ustinov Studio’s American Season 2013.

    4 Star Rating Vivid and compelling ... Doherty and Riotta feel utterly authentic -The Times

    It's hard to believe that even Jackman and Craig could have matched the unshowy power of Riotta and Doherty - The Guardian

    5 Star Rating As well as David Grindley's tight-hugging direction we get two outstanding acting performances ... the Ustinov's American season simply gets better and better. In fact this physically verbal duologue may have topped even its own previous high standards - Bristol Post

    "A must-see play ... Searing, funny, visceral ... when it ends leaves you remembering you should actually draw breath ... As storytelling goes it’s electric, and the performances are riveting ... Under David Grindley’s direction, this is yet another compelling piece of theatre in the Ustinov’s American Season" - Bath Chronicle
