Marie comes home to plan her addicted mother Lorraine’s funeral. “Rain” left a surprising final wish for Marie and her cousin Caleb, a meth user, to fulfill together. Marie struggles with her anger and loss in a tense, and often funny, play that deals with the opioid crisis in Michigan’s northwoods. Developed in Flint Rep’s 2022 New Works Festival.
