|Tasi Alabastro & Robert Sean Campbell
“None of this ever happened.” In the midst of a heated argument, inner feelings flow unabashedly into the open; closely held secrets tumble into the light of day; and suddenly looks of shock and regret replace those of intended insult and resulting anger. In Richard Greenberg’s Three Days of Rain, now at Dragon Productions Theatre Company, this same sequence occurs decades apart by members of two families and their two generations, leading each time to an uneasy agreement to act as if nothing ever occurred. In this 1998 Pulitzer Prize nominated drama, the question of what really happened years prior and who did what becomes central to three grown children after two of the three of their parents have passed away and the third is losing her mind. In the end, the play leads each of us to question how much do we really know about our own families’ histories and why we are who we are today.
