Bat Boy: The Musical

Described by the Chicago Sun-Times as “a hallucinatory roller-coaster ride” of “emotional cataclysms and action-packed storytelling,” and by the Chicago Tribune as “a gritty, rich, thick, poetic, and entirely gripping noir,” A Steady Rain is the tale of Denny and Joey – two Windy City police officers and lifelong friends.

Through a series of monologues, dialogues, and re-created scenes that chronicle the build-up and aftermath of a horrific drive-by shooting, the play is an exploration of power and control as Denny and Joey face corruption, brutality, and betrayal from both external and internal forces.

Please Note: A Steady Rain contains adult language and graphic descriptions of violence. Not recommended for younger viewers.

Run time: 85 minutes, no intermission.



REVIEWS

"Jaw-droppingly fantastic..."
"It says something about a production when it leaves you contemplating it on the way home,
haunts your dreams, and occupies your thoughts throughout the next day..."
"[I'm] in awe of the outstanding presentation of Huff’s brilliant script."
- Thom White, River Cities' Reader

"Taylor is fiery and flammable as Denny...Schulz is spent and drained as Joey..."
"Both men handle the different sides of their characters well
and have a jocular rapport that works."
- Sean Leary, Quad-City Times

"[The Workshop] has been a consistent home for smart, incisive, challenging and tremendously well-acted plays and musicals...A Steady Rain is a breathtaking, heartbreaking continuation of that streak."
"QCTW again proves an intelligent, professional interpreter of these unforgettable tales."
