The Manhattan Theatre Club is extending its FREE streaming version of Three Days of Rain, a romantic comedy starring Patricia Clarkson, John Slattery and Bradley Whitford.
The Pulitzer Prize-nominated play, by Richard Greenberg, now is available for streaming until March 25.
Set in New York, Three Days of Rain follows siblings Nan and Walker reconnecting with their childhood friend Pip when they come home to settle their father’s estate. The discovery of a diary brings us back in time to their parents’ lives in the 1960s and to the truth of the legacy that connects the generations.
We said it’s FREE, but you are welcome to donate to help continue the work of the Manhattan Theatre Club.
