A dark duologue filled with sharp storytelling and biting repartee, "A Steady Rain" explores the complexities of a lifelong friendship tested by domestic affairs, violence and the rough streets of Chicago.

Written by Keith Huff ("Madmen, House of Cards"), "A Steady Rain" premiered on Broadway with Daniel Craig and Hugh Jackman.
