A Hard Rain
 
A moving, colorful drama -The Stage
 
Venue: ( Theater For the New City)
Theater For the New City
Producer: ( Theater for the New City)
Theater for the New City
City: New York

Additional Notes:
“A Hard Rain” Explores the causes and effects of repression and marginalization.Mafia run bars, police corruption and virulent homophobia come under the spotlight in Jon Bradfield and Martin Hoopers poignant exploration of the circumstances leading up to the 1969 Stonewall riots, and the birth of the modern gay liberation movement.The drama is set not in the infamous Stonewall Inn, but a neighboring, Mafia run joint – a pressure cooker of desire, anger and thwarted hope. As the lid is whipped off were thrown into a subculture that is finally demanding recognition. Being underground is no longer enough as the characters struggle to find new ways to negotiate intimacy and ideas of community.Its always nice to see important historical events brought to life on stage but it can be hard to get the balance right between demonstrating your point and over loading the audience with information that they dont particularly want to know.A Hard Rain is well performed, well staged and laced with humor that perfectly balances out the serious subject matter, A Hard Rain is a fun night out that inadvertently teaches you about one of the most important gay rights movement this century has seen.Impactful, without being overly preachy or grave, the play celebrates the modern roots of queer culture without sidestepping the personal struggles and conflicts within it. In fact, it shows just how integral those conflicts were, and still are, to ushering in change and social progress. It brings the difficulties of personal tragedies and social prejudices to life and does something remarkable, by showing the strength and resilience of the humanspirit through these wonderfully unapologetic, vibrant characters.Against a backdrop of Mafia-funded illegal gay bars, homophobic laws and policecorruption, the habitual of the Stonewall Inn suddenly refused to accept another police raid and fought back. The Stonewall riots of 1969 marked the beginning of the gay liberation in the USA.
