The Rainmaker

Monette has been cast in THE RAINMAKER at Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey running July 31 through August 18.

The 1957 award-winning film, staring Burt Lancaster and Katharine Hepburn, was based on this great American stage classic, as was the musical, 110 Degrees in the Shade. Author N. Richard Nash calls the play a romantic comedy but it is so much more. Set in rural, dust-bowl America, it is about a parched land desperate for rain, and the tough but lonely people who live there, thirsting for love. This is a play about yearning, family, hope, and the magic that sometimes pours down on us from the unlikeliest of sources.
