A Steady Rain

by Keith Huff

Directed by Andrew Pearson

Joey and Denny have been best friends since kindergarten. Joey helps out with Denny’s wife and kids; Denny keeps Joey away from the bottle.

Now they’re cops in downtown Chicago, crime is a fact of life. But when a domestic disturbance call takes a turn for the worse, it brings about a change in the weather…

A Steady Rain, from House of Cards and Mad Men writer Keith Huff, is a heart-stopping drama about a lifelong bond on the line.

Since its 2009 Broadway debut, starring Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig, the play has won major plaudits and has been earmarked by Stephen Spielberg for a film adaptation. Don’t miss the London premiere at Arcola, starring Vincent Regan (300, Troy, Clash of the Titans) and David Schaal (The Office, The Inbetweeners).


London premiere – Tickets from just £10

★★★★ The acting in this production is superb. “Just like Starsky & Hutch,” Denny and Joey say to each other. No, I thought, as the rain fell, so much better than that.
—The Times
★★★★ Powerful and ferociously raw ... builds tension, drop by rain-soaked drop
—Stage Review

★★★★ A gritty, witty, captivating cop drama
—Gay Times
★★★★ A really great piece of theatre
—LondonTheatre1
★★★★ It’s not a play for the faint hearted, but it is well worth watching
—West End Wilma
Gritty and gripping, A Steady Rain sucks you in with its twisting, pacing plot, and spits you back out, thrilled and affected, at the end. ... It’s hard to imagine a better produced performance of this play
—East End Review
A genuinely gripping story
—The Gizzle Review
Dark, clever, disturbing and shocking
—Entertainment Focus
