Gentle Rain is the haunting story of two Civil War soldiers—one a wounded Confederate sergeant, the other a young Yankee privateùforced to share a barn after surviving the bloodiest single day of combat in American history…the Battle of Antietam (Sharpsburg). After indulging their hatred and trying to kill one another, they settle down to a tentative truce which ends up exposing their mutually-wounded souls. A surprise revelation leads to compassion, redemption, and even love. This play will make the reader stop and think about how we treat each other, in peace as well as in war, and offers hope that the pain we inflict can always be mended.
