feeds us all.”
Praying For Rain is a multimedia performance about the men behind the image, their devotion to the land, their love of family, and their tie to deep beliefs.

Through evocative songs, narration, and onscreen projections, Praying For Rain forges a compelling tale from first hand accounts, historical sources, and the vantage point of hindsight. Celebrating the courage, humor, joy, and resilience of the American farmer, it is a powerful and spirited evening of theater and song.
