American Conservatory Theater (A.C.T.) presents N. Richard Nash's classic western romance The Rainmaker. This classic American romance is about a drought, a con artist, a country girl, and the way that love can overcome cynicism in even the most tired of souls. When a charismatic huckster named Starbuck comes to the drought-stricken Curry farm, he promises to make it rain-for a price, of course. But as Starbuck and Lizzie, the lone daughter of the family, discover a genuine chemistry, they begin to consider the possibility of a real miracle.
