Three Days of Rain
By Richard Greenberg
Directed by Ryan Crowder
Featuring Sarah Gay, Nathan Jerkins and Sean Martin
A Pulitzer finalist by Tony Award winning author Richard Greenberg. The play centers on Walker, his sister Nan, and their childhood friend Pip, who all meet in an unoccupied loft in lower Manhattan in 1995 to divide the legacy of their late fathers, who were partners in a renowned architecture firm.
In an effort to bring some peace to their own lives, the three search for clues that might explain what had gone on between their fathers, and the women in their lives, decades before. The story then shifts to that earlier time, with the same three actors portraying members of the previous generation in the same loft, during the fateful 1960 "three days of rain," which gives the play its title.
