A tale of two cops at the Fugard Theatre

Keith Huff’s A Steady Rain will be staged at the Fugard Theatre from Tuesday October 4 to Saturday October 29.

Brent Palmer (The Kingmakers; Bench) and Nicholas Pauling (Clybourne Park; The Pervert Laura) star in this noir tale of two Chicago police officers whose inner need to serve and protect both consumes them and rips them apart.

The play is directed by Adrian Collins (Hamlet; Bench; The Birthday Party). Pauling and Collins were both nominated for Fleur du Cap awards this year, for Best Actor and Best New Director, respectively.

Using razor-sharp story-telling, writer Keith Huff weaves the perspectives of police officers, Joey and Denny, into a harrowing story. Long time partners and best friends, Joey and Denny have serious problems. Joey struggles with alcohol abuse while he secretly obsesses over Denny’s wife. Denny is resentful, aggressive and a racist cheater. During the course of the compelling and devastating narrative, the audience is kept white-knuckled right until the moment the lights go down.

The Fugard Theatre is situated in the heart of District Six, on the corner of Harrington and Caledon Streets, Cape Town.

Tickets range from R130 to R150 and can be booked through Computicket or call the Fugard Theatre box office on 021 461 4554.
