The Main Stage of Theatro Skala opens the new theatre season with the romantic comedy ‘The Rainmaker’ by Richard Nash, translated by Despina Pyrketti and directed by Monica Meleki.
What: The Rainmaker
When: Until March 19
Where: Skala Theater, 15 Kyriakou Matsi Street, Larnaca
Set in a drought-ridden rural town in the West in Depression-era America, the play tells the story of a pivotal hot summer day in the life of spinsterish Lizzie Curry. Lizzie keeps house for her father and two brothers on the family cattle ranch. She has just returned from a trip to visit pseudo-cousins (all male), which was undertaken with the failed expectation that she would find a husband.
As their farm languishes under the devastating drought, Lizzie’s family worries about her marriage prospects more than about their dying cattle.
The play will be performed on Saturdays at 8.30pm and Sundays at 6.30pm until March 19. For more information call 99490102.
