GableStage at the Biltmore presents Steady Rain by Keith Huff

From March 3 through April 1, 2012.

Chicago police officers Joey and Denny are longtime partners and best friends. Joey is single and lonely, and Denny is married with children; but both men have flaws and serious problems. Introverted Joey struggles with a drinking problem and secretly loves Denny’s wife, Connie; angry tough-guy Denny can barely disguise his racism and cheats on Connie with a prostitute on his beat.

The two men offer contrasting descriptions to Internal Affairs interrogators of their harrowing experiences. They relate how Walter Lorenz, a pimp that Denny has harassed over the years, shoots a bullet through Denny’s front window, causing flying glass to sever an artery in Denny’s son’s neck. Denny pursues Lorenz relentlessly, drawing Denny into a series of dangerous and incriminating activities. During a domestic disturbance call, the two return a frightened Vietnamese boy to a man who says he is the boy’s uncle. The uncle turns out to be a cannibalistic serial killer, who eats the boy.
