Seven Tyrants Theatre, Vancouver’s Jessie Award-winning independent theatre company, concludes their first season in their new theatre space with a remount of last season’s award-winning production of A Steady Rain by Keith Huff, Directed by Bill Devine and starring Seven Tyrants co-founders Daniel Deorksen and David Thomas Newham with live music provided by Kurt Schindelka.
Seven Tyrants Theatre Presents A Steady Rain
Where: Tyrant Studios (1019 Seymour St, Vancouver)
When: May 23 to May 31, 2019 at 7:00pm, Tuesdays – Saturdays
Tickets: Available online now for $29
A dark duologue filled with sharp storytelling and biting repartee, A Steady Rain explores the complexities of a lifelong bond tainted by domestic affairs, violence, and the rough streets of Chicago. Joey and Denny have been best friends since kindergarten, and after working together for several years as policemen in Chicago, they are practically family: Joey helps out with Denny’s wife and kids; Denny keeps Joey away from the bottle. But when a domestic disturbance call takes a turn for the worse, their friendship is put on the line. The result is a harrowing journey into a moral gray area where trust and loyalty struggle for survival against a sobering backdrop of pimps, prostitutes, and criminal lowlifes.
The play will be performed in Tyrant Studios, the rarely opened private rooms above the historic Penthouse Nightclub. Recently converted to a studio theatre, these upstairs rooms once hosted exclusive parties and performances by music legends like Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Sammy Davis Jr, and Frank Sinatra.
