When The Rain Stops Falling

When The Rain Stops Falling

Alice Springs in the year 2039. A fish falls from the sky and lands at the feet of Gabriel York. It still smells of the sea. It's been raining for days and Gabriel knows something is wrong.

Against a backdrop of cataclysmic climate change, Andrew Bovell’s deeply moving play interweaves the stories of 7 family members across 4 generations and 2 continents in an epic and profound quest for answers - from ‘Will our world survive us?’ to the more personal 'How can we survive our own family histories and traumas?'

A story of love, betrayal, abandonment and, ultimately, hope.

When the Rain Stops Falling premiered at the 2008 Adelaide Festival of the Arts winning numerous awards.

Red Dog produces and tours outstanding text-driven, award-winning plays that are thought provoking, gutsy and visceral; plays that explore the human condition in all its glory and ignominy, that uplift the soul and embrace what it is to be human.

One of the best theatrical performances I have ever been too.”

I have never been so immersed in theatre story telling like that…it was brilliant

captivating, disturbing, moving, and thrilling evening's theatre."

“....beautiful combination of words, talent and technical mastery...”

Proper grown up theatre. It’s rich and dense, but never less than compelling

We're sorry but there are no upcoming dates for this event.
