A Steady Rain
A STEADY RAIN is a play by Keith Huff.  Joey and Denny have been best friends since kindergarten, after working together for several years as policemen in Chicago, they are practically family. But when a domestic disturbance call takes a turn for the worse, their friendship is put on the line. The result is a difficult journey into a moral gray area where trust and loyalty struggle for survival against a sobering backdrop of criminal lowlifes. 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.

A new member of the New Jersey Theater Alliance and Nominated for the 2015 New Jersey Stage Award as one of the "Best Places to See a World Premiere", Hudson Theatre Works is a not for profit, equity theatre committed to ensemble collaboration as well as artistic risk through its work with its permanent company, guest artists, partner institutions and the surrounding community.  It is dedicated to a rugged aesthetic and seeks to tell stories, both new and old, classic and contemporary, which reflect our lives, relationships and world today. Past productions have included "Of Mice and Men", "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest", the original play "3 Men' which won Best Non Fiction piece at this years' Solo Fest, the New Jersey Premiere of Neil Labute's Bash" and last years world premiere of Jackson Is Gone by New Jersey State Council on the Arts winner Joanne Hoersch. The company operates out of two venues, the theater at Weehawken High School and the intimate Weehawken Water Tower. For more, visit http://www.hudsontheatreworks.org
