Three Days of Rain
By Richard Greenberg
Directed by Derek Van Barham
May 18 – June 25, 2017
presented at the Heartland Studio
Ever since his father's funeral, Walker Janeway has been holed up in the old loft once belonging to his father and his father's business partner. Walker's father was architectural legend Ned Janeway, and together with his partner Theo they designed the famous "Janeway House." Walker remains furious that his father left the Janeway House to Theo's son Pip rather than he and his sister Nan. As the three children try uncover the truth, Walker finds evidence that his father actually stole all of his ideas from Theo. The truth of the past, however, is much different than they realize. Shifting from present to past, Three Days of Rain examines the depth of family secrets and how children become reflections of their parents.

Rave reviews for Three Days of Rain:
"A handsome intimate revival... These actors... make even the less palatable aspects of the characters resonate truthfully over the course of both acts." ★★★
"Riveting... an achingly painful narrative that haunted me long after the show ended." RECOMMENDED
"A tight little gem of a play... well-directed and well-acted... Kate Black-Spence gives a luminous performance... Kyle Curry is taut and intense."
"A solid and enjoyable production... To single out any one performer would be a disservice to the careful work that the three of them have done together."
–Chicago Stage Standard
"Elegant staging and transformative performances mark this excellent, haunting production... BoHo’s fine production provides few answers, but the deep mysteries at work in something as simple as a few words haunt long after the audience exits the theater." Ranked "One of the Best"
–Theatre by Numbers
"Captivating... Richard Greenberg’s poetic and musical script meets the calculated direction of Derek Van Barham and immediately compelling performances from Kate Black-Spence, Niko Kourtis and Kyle Curry... Overall, all three actors’ grasp of character and intense emotion between them is incredibly strong."
–New City Stage
"BoHo’s production stars three amazingly versatile actors who are equally believable and captivating"
