Heartrendingly beautiful play by Australian playwright Andrew Bovell. When the Rain Stops Falling spans four generations and two continents, exploring patterns of betrayal, abandonment, love and, finally, redemption.
In a claustrophobic flat in London in 1965 Henry Law declares he has visions of the future – one day fish will fall from the sky and the earth become a sea. In the Australian desert in 2039, in a world ravaged by climate change, a fish falls from the sky landing at the feet of Henry’s descendent Gabriel York. In the intervening years and generations seven characters grapple with the mysteries of their past.
A complex and challenging play of breath-taking ambition.
