Join us at The Art Place for “The Rainmaker,” a play produced by Center Stage North.
At the time of a paralyzing drought in the West we discover a girl whose father and two brothers are worried as much about her potential future as an old maid as they are about their dying cattle. The brothers try every possible scheme to marry her off, but without success. Nor is there any sign of relief from the dry heat, when suddenly from out of nowhere appears a picaresque, sweet-talking man with quite the sales pitch. Claiming to be a “rainmaker,” the man promises to bring rain, for $100. Meanwhile the rainmaker also turns his magic on the girl, and persuades her that she has a very real beauty of her own.
