A Hatful of Rain: A Drama in Three Acts
A Hatful of Rain pulls no punch, of horror, tension or heroics. And it is all to Gazzo's brimful credit that the characters remain believable and sympathetic. A young man's terrible war injuries have made him rely on dope. His wife is pregnant, and he is unable to keep jobs. His simple, devoted brother has alienated their adventurous father by giving his money in secret to the victim. Neither the wife nor the father knows what is happening. The young husband is backed to the wall by the peddlers, and they both find out. THey also learn the more terrifying evidence of what it means to be a deprived addict. -- from page 3.
