Drought can be a formidable opponent as summer approaches in our arid desert clime. On the rare occasion it rains, walking through a torrential downpour can be the next best thing to a dip in the lake. A similar predicament of extended dryness is faced by the characters in N. Richard Nash's The Rainmaker, a play about love and drought on a ranch in the Depression-era West. It's being staged at the Adobe Theater (9813 Fourth Street NW) under the direction of Daryl Streeter. Check it out tonight at 8 p.m. or tomorrow at 2 p.m., or through its runs which goes till May 20.
