Glory may be just a little kid but she's in big trouble - when she accidentally opens an old, locked book she finds in an old trunk, a mysterious stranger jumps out! "I am the Rain King, The Lord Of Tears, The Master Of Sorrows, The Commander of the Darkness in your soul! I suck the happiness from your thought and leave only fear and desolation. Destruction is my bread and butter, loss is my meat and drink!" And Glory is the one responsible for releasing him from his prison and setting him free in the world again!

Glory may be just a little kid but she's in big trouble - when she accidentally opens an old, locked book she finds in an old trunk, a mysterious stranger jumps out! "I am the Rain King, The Lord Of Tears, The Master Of Sorrows, The Commander of the Darkness in your soul! I suck the happiness from your thought and leave only fear and desolation. Destruction is my bread and butter, loss is my meat and drink!" And Glory is the one responsible for releasing him from his prison and setting him free in the world again! Before she can stop him, he kidnaps Pete and disappears back into the book. To rescue Pete, Glory and her friends must follow and soon find themselves jumping from story to story - battling pirates in "Treasure Island", helping young Arthur pull the sword from the stone in "Le Morte D'arthur" facing down bank robbers in "Prairie Rustlers" and even becoming bugs! Can they save Pete, not to mention the rest of the world, from this dangerous monster or will he cast his evil spell over us all. A funny chilling and imaginative play with an exciting climax.

"After The Rain King" was first performed by the Chatham Middle School Drama Club at the Chatham High School auditorium on Cape Cod, Massachusetts on May 30, 2003.

We just wrapped a production of After the Rain King with our junior high school drama club.  This play is well written and fun.  It was a great pick for junior high school students, but I could see it as a hit for older performers as well.  It is a fun show for kids of all ages.  We had a blast with this show.  I highly recommend it if you are looking for something fresh and fun.
