Casey Horn is growing old, and with age comes a whole lot of trouble—between his mother’s poor taste in men, his younger brother’s out-of-this-world obsession, and the neighbor girl’s frustrating lack of interest, he’s finding that life isn’t exactly grand. The Secret Rain follows Casey as he navigates these obstacles with the help of Audrey Hepburn (yes, the film star). Produced by the Charlottesville Playwrights Collaborative, with a mission to reveal the city’s hidden writing talents, this one was penned by Robert Wray.

Through Saturday, September 29. Pay-what-you-can, 8pm. Belmont Arts Collaborative, 221 Carlton Rd., Ste. 3. cvilleplays.org.
