The judgment of the country’s police force is called into question seemingly every day. Combined with the ever-increasing rise of violence in Chicago, Keith Huff’s searing drama about two Chicago policemen is timely. A Steady Rain, an intimate two hander at Atlanta’s Alliance Theatre, follows Joey and Denny. Best friends since kindergarten, the two cops are now practically family – Joey helps out with Denny’s wife and kids and Denny keeps Joey away from booze. Sharing a squad car, the two men bond together against a violent and deeply troubling inner city.
