It's the 1930’s, out West, during the Depression, with no hope of rain in site.  Enter Starbuck, who claims he can make it rain for $100.  There are those who believe he can do it - and those who don’t.  And then there’s Lizzie, who wants so much to believe in anything – especially herself.  

This comedy-drama Western started out as a one-act 1953 production for Philco Television Playhouse. ‚ÄčThe full two-act version was a smash hit on Broadway in 1954, starring Geraldine Page and Darrin McGavin, It has been translated into over 40 languages and is still regularly performed in theaters throughout the U.S. and around the world. A 1956 film version (also written by Nash) starred Katharine Hepburn and Burt Lancaster. There was a 1982 full-length TV production, a 1999 Broadway revival starring Jayne Atkinson and Woody Harrelson, and a 2007 Broadway revival of 110 in the Shade, that was nominated for a Tony, starring Audra McDonald.
