A STEADY RAIN by Keith Huff

Tron Theatre, Fri 16- Sat 24 September, 2016

Two Chicago cops Joey and Denny look out for each other – Joey helps with Denny’s wife and kids and Denny keeps Joey away from the bottle. When they are faced with a domestic disturbance call that takes a turn for the worse their lifelong, almost family-like, bond is put to the test. Trust, honesty and loyalty struggle to endure the brutal reality of the lives of these two best friends.
