Set in a drought-ridden rural town in the West in Depression-era America, this 1954 play tells the story of one pivotal hot summer day in the life of spinster Lizzie Curry. Lizzie keeps house for her father and two brothers on the family cattle ranch, but dreams of more. As their farm languishes under a devastating drought, Lizzie's family worries about her marriage prospects more than about their dying cattle. A charming trickster named Starbuck arrives and promises to bring rain, and maybe more, for a price. His arrival sets off a series of events that enable Lizzie to see herself in a new light. Sonoma’s Abbey Lee (Cabaret) stars as Lizzie, and Tyler McKenna (Venus in Fur) is Starbuck. The Rainmaker is written by N. Richard Nash and presented with special permission from Samuel French. Directed by Patrick Nims (George M!).
