Somerset Maugham's Rain Will Open Wednesday Night on KSU Stage [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 28 July 1964
Somerset Maugham's Rain Will Open Wednesday Night on KSU Stage "Sadie Thompson" will once again be kicking up her heels to the wail of the gramophone when Rain opens Wednesday night at the E. Turner Stump Theatre. The third production of the KSU Summer Theatre will run through Saturday night and play a second run August 5-8. Curtain time is 8:30 p.m. Based on a well-known Somerset Maugham short story, Rain is set in a seedy South Seas trading post in the height of the rainy season.

The play, written by John Colton and Clemence Randolph, will be directed here by Dr. William Zucchero, assistant professor of speech. Playing "Sadie," the role chat made a star of Jeanne Eagles, will be Carole...
