A four-block walk from the City Station stop on the Canada Line from Richmond sits the Penthouse Club. After 72 years as a strip club, the rarely-opened private room upstairs now hosts an intimate theatre venue for Seven Tyrants Theatre Company.

A four-block walk from the City Station stop on the Canada Line from Richmond sits the Penthouse Club. After 72 years as a strip club, the rarely-opened private room upstairs now hosts an intimate theatre venue for Seven Tyrants Theatre Company.

Starting May 23 and running through May 31, Seven Tyrants’ award-winning production of “A Steady Rain” offers viewers biting dialogue and sharp repartee between two life-long friends, now fellow cops on the tough streets of Chicago. Keith Huff’s play explores the moral grey areas when something perturbs a strong bond that started in kindergarten.

Breaking box office records with its Broadway debut, “A Steady Rain” featured Daniel Craig and Hugh Jackman in the lead roles. Playwright Huff functioned as writer/co-producer on the TV series “Mad Men” and “House of Cards,” both shows known for their sharp dialogue and biting content.

Seven Tyrant’s remount of “A Steady Rain” at the upstairs studio theatre of the Penthouse Nightclub, 1019 Seymour Street, Vancouver runs through May 31. It offers affordable theatre up close and personal. For tickets click or at the door.
