The Rainmaker tonight at Adobe Theater
By Sam Adams [ Sat May 5 2012 1:22 PM ]
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.

Adobe revitalizes N. Richard Nash’s tale of love-thirsty life on the range
By Christie Chisholm
In a dusty Western town, drought plagues the Currys and their Depression-era cattle ranch. There’s the literal drought, of course, which has made the whole burg fidgety for want of a single nimbostratus. Then there’s the one that resides in the heart of Lizzie Curry, who cooks and cleans for her father and two grown brothers.
