Portraying the “City Of Roses” like it’s been never seen (or heard) before, Rain! is the story of a one-hit-wonder rocker who returns home to Portland to woo back the lover he jilted and the city he abandoned – only to discover that it hasn’t rained in 274 days. Not a drop. When he finds himself asking, “What’s the point of Portland without the rain?” he turns the sun-happy town upside down. Libretto by screenwriter Monte Merrick, and music and lyrics by celebrated Portland singer-songwriter Richard Moore. Part of the Fertile Ground Festival for new works.
