The 90-minute two-hander centers on the strained professional and personal relationship of two long-time cops who share a dark secret. First performed in 2007, the play had its Broadway premiere in 2009 starring Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig.

Perry (Tribes, "Scandal") directs a cast that includes Thomas Vincent Kelly and Sal Viscuso. Performances are scheduled through April 20.

A Steady Rain has set and video design by Adam Flemming, lighting design by Michael Gend and sound design by John Zalewski.

The drama is described as "a gritty, darkly poetic duologue about two Chicago police officers whose inner need to serve and protect consumes them — and also rips them apart. Kelly ans Viscuso star as partners on the force whose lifelong friendship is put to the test when a deadly error of judgment sends their lives spinning out of control."
