A Steady Rain

by Keith Huff, Directed by Malinda L. Beckham

The years’-long bond between two Chicago police officers begins to unravel after a routine investigation leads to the death of a young boy. 

Loosely based on an actual incident involving serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer, A Steady Rain explores issues of loyalty, betrayal, friendship, and honor, as one of the cops has to take the blame for the boy’s death when the truth of what happened is eventually revealed.

Originally produced as the opening play in its inaugural season, Dirt Dogs Theatre Co. restages the gritty Chicago drama with an updated score composed by self-described “cinematic pop musician and performer," Hescher.Read more

Clybourne Park

by Bruce Norris, Directed by Ron Jones

An homage to Lorraine Hansberry’s 1959 play, A Raisin in the Sun, Clybourne Park examines the evolution of a Chicago neighborhood over a 50-year time span. 

Act One takes place in 1959, as white community leaders anxiously try to stop the sale of a home to a Black family. Act Two is set in the same house in 2009, as the now predominantly Black neighborhood faces gentrification. With the same cast appearing in both acts, Clybourne Park examines how people and places evolve over time and play different roles in society’s progress—or the hindrance thereof.Read more
