Painted Rain is the one act play that we performed for the Regional One Act Play Competition, where we won runner-up. Ervin Richard received the All-Star Cast award, and Timeyin Mabiaku took home the Best Actor award for his performance!!
Painted Rain by Janet Allard explores the relationship between two boys in an orphanage, on the verge of being separated by adoption. The younger boy, an energetic non-conformist, tries desperately to draw out his older roommate, who is an aspiring painter confined to a wheelchair that he refuses to relinquish for leg braces. Both boys strive to live life the way they want to live it and make their own choices, despite the external pressures and expectations of a well-meaning social worker. As the impending separation nears, these two “almost brothers” struggle to break through their alienation and isolation to find companionship and connection.
