“Talk to Me Like the Rain and Let Me Listen”

January 2011

Talk to Me Like the Rain

Directed by Christina Gutierrez-Dennehy

Part of the 2011 Frontera Fest Short Fringe

From Christina:

“Let’s find each other and maybe we won’t be lost.”

In a dingy New York bedroom, an unnamed man and woman suffer the emotional fallout of loneliness, drug abuse, and dying passion in the hauntingly poetic language that is Tennessee Williams’ trademark. “Talk to Me Like the Rain…” riffs on the desperation underlying more familiar Williams’s plays like A Streetcar Named Desire, but substitutes an intensely focused urban character study for sweeping Southern narrative.
