SHOW DESCRIPTION
The Rainmaker is a tale of love and a tale of hope, set in “a western state on a summer day in a time of drought.” Just as the Curry family is beginning to despair, Starbuck -- a self-proclaimed “Rainmaker” comes on the scene. He is full of dreams, passion, and self-confidence -- a quality unhappily unmarried, young Lizzie Curry especially lacks. Starbuck promises that he will bring rain and break the drought that is claiming the Currys crops and their cattle, if they agree to pay him the hefty sum of $100. Unlikely though his claim may be, Starbuck eventually wins over the entire Curry Family. Eventually, the rain comes -- a rain that nourishes not only the land, but the Curry family, as well. Nash’s romantic comedy brings provincial America to life in a heartfelt domestic drama about the importance of self-belief.
