Based on N. Richard Nash’s THE RAINMAKER, 110 IN THE SHADE is set in the hard years of the Depression-era Dust Bowl. Saddled to a failing cattle ranch, the only woman in a family of menfolk, Lizzie Curry has just about given up hope of finding love and escape. But when a charming trickster named Starbuck breezes into town promising to bring rain for $100, Lizzie’s father gives the man the last of the family’s savings, knowing that what he has to offer them, and Lizzie, is more than just rain.
110 IN THE SHADE runs October 28th – December 16th. For more information visit bohotheatre.com.
