The Rainmaker

About her becoming an old maid as they are about their dying cattle For the truth is she is indeed a plain girl The brothers try every possible scheme to marry. I had to read this play because I m supposed to construct a Directors Notebook on it for my IB Theatre Arts class and honestly it s given me so much material to work with and I love that It s got great characters and a pretty good plot with very complex scenes Overall too though it was a very pleasing read I enjoyed it and I wasn t ever bored The main reason it got marked down a star is because it didn t have the ending I wanted it was still good just not what I wanted
