About The Rainmaker
The 1957 award-winning film, starring Burt Lancaster and Katharine Hepburn, was based on this great American stage classic, as was the musical, 110 Degrees in the Shade. Author N. Richard Nash calls the play a romantic comedy but it is so much more. Set in rural, dust-bowl America, it is about a parched land desperate for rain, and the tough but lonely people who live there, thirsting for love. This is a play about yearning, family, hope, and the magic that sometimes pours down on us from the unlikeliest of sources.
