Romantic Comedy by N. Richard Nash
August 15, 16, 17 & 22, 23, 24, 2014
At the time of a paralyzing drought in the West, we discover a girl whose father and two brothers are worried as much about her potential future as an old maid as they are about their dying cattle. The brothers try every possible scheme to marry her off, but without success. Nor is there any sign of relief from the dry heat. Suddenly out of nowhere appears a picaresque, sweet-talking man with quite the sales pitch. Claiming to be a “rainmaker,” the man promises to bring rain for $100. It’s a silly idea, but the rainmaker is so persistent that the family finally consents, banging on big brass drums to rattle the sky. Meanwhile, the rainmaker also turns his magic on the girl, and persuades her that she has a very real beauty of her own. She believes it. Rain does come, and so does love. This is a warm play about self-esteem, beauty and love. Reviews have called it stirring, captivating, and wonderfully funny.” TARGET AUDIENCE: Teen, Adult.
