Berkshire Theatre Group presents Michael V. Gazzo’s A Hatful of Rain, a poignant foray into the devastating effects of heroin in the life of a Korean War veteran at the Fitzpatrick Main Stage in Stockbridge. Preview performances begin at 7pm Wednesday (August 13); opening night is 8pm Saturday (August 16); and the production closes at 8pm August 30.

Tickets to A Hatful of Rain are $42 to $62; all preview tickets are $42. Veterans receive 20% off full price tickets.

The war fought abroad is just as devastating as the war fought within. This rings devastatingly true for Johnny Pope (Tommy Schrider) a Korean War veteran who has safely returned home to New York City and now struggles with drug addiction after being heavily medicated during his hospital stay.
