Chi-town's Victory Gardens continues its 25th anniversary season with S.L. Daniels' Rain, River, Ice, Steam, beginning previews Nov. 6 for a Nov. 16-Dec. 13 run.

In Rain, River, Ice, Steam, Rhonda is incredibly rich -- so much so, she has the ability to purchase anything she wants -- except the thing she wants most: faith. When she learns of a small town hospital which was saved from a raging fire by a miracle rain, she instantly flies there. During her quest for truth, she encounters numerous residents of the town whose lives have been changed by the rain, including a man who sells the rain to tourists for $29.95 each.

The production will feature an aquarium-like set formed out of more than 500 assorted jars of the "miracle rain," designed by Jack Magaw. The cast for Rain, River includes: Sarah Underwood, Cheryl Graeff, Karen Hammer, Lawrence MacGowan, Chaney Kley Minnis, Erin Philyaw, and Jason Wells.

Daniels' play premiered last spring at Moving Arts in Los Angeles, this production marks a Victory Gardens tradition where each year they find a playwright, outside their 12 member Playwrights Ensemble and give the "new talent" a major production.

Rain, River, Ice, Steam runs at the Victory Gardens Theatre, beginning previews Nov. 6, for a Nov. 16-Dec. 13, run. For tickets ($25 $30), or more information, call (773) 871-3000. -- By Sean McGrath
