The Rainmaker

A Romantic Comedy
By N. Richard Nash

June 20 to July 7, 2018

St. Jacobs Country Playhouse


The forecast calls for showers of laughter with a romantic comedy that makes a handsome case for miracles.

In the midst of a harsh western summer, plain and hardworking Lizzie Curry is trying to help her family survive a severe drought. Out of nowhere, a fast-talking stranger appears, making an outrageous claim. For a price, he promises to bring rain! The offer sounds too refreshing to pass up and might just represent everyone's last chance - a rancher's last hope of survival, a con man's last shot of redemption, and a woman's last glimmer of romance.

The Rainmaker proves that dreams can come true, and with enough faith, all things are possible – magic, rain ... and yes, even love.
