Make peace with the past before it destroys the future

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.
