Theatre Tuscaloosa's 2016-17 Season: Share the Dream

SecondStage: Alabama Rain

May 3 - 7, 2017

by Heather McCutchen

The Historic Drish House*


Monty Lou's been pregnant for 10 years; Laurie Laurie's dead spirit sings from the old magnolia tree; Pheenie's walking the entire coast of Florida; Rachel's gone to fetch the Ouija board; and little Dallas LaDean is determined to save them all. In Alabama Rain, Heather McCutchen tells the tale of five sisters living in a mythical Southern town where it has not rained in 40 years. The play examines the perils of a stagnant existence and the sisters' thirst for growth as they battle with the powerful force of "the way things have always been."


* This play will be presented at The Historic Drish House. For directions and more information about the venue, please see below.


This play is intended for audiences aged 16+.

The Historic Drish House

Theatre Tuscaloosa is proud to partner with our host for this production, The Historic Drish House. For more information about this historic building, visit their Facebook page here.


One of the most historically rich buildings in West Alabama, The Drish House is being restored to become Tuscaloosa’s ultimate event and wedding venue. While The Drish House is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a beautiful antebellum plantation structure, it has been updated with the comfort and needs of today's event host and guests in mind.

With renovations giving the house an experiential structure with both open spaces and beautiful silhouettes, The Drish House provides the perfect setting for your next event: wedding, rehearsal dinner, personal or corporate party, charity fundraiser, 
organizational retreat or art opening.

Management of all events at The Drish House is exclusively offered by Vikki Grodner, one of Alabama's premiere event planners. We look forward to working with you on your special event to create an unforgettable experience for you and your guests.
