Alice Springs. 2039. A fish falls from the sky.

It’s been raining for days, the apocalypse looms ever closer and Gabriel York knows something is wrong.

When the Rain Stops Falling unfolds like a puzzle to be solved. Told through the interconnected stories of two families over four generations, between a prediction in London in 1959 and its outcome in Australia eighty years later.

Written by Andrew Bovell (Lantana, After Dinner, Anthem), When the Rain Stops Falling is an epic and powerful piece of magic realism which asks: do we have the capacity to address the damage of the past in the future?

An intricate, layered story exploring betrayal, abandonment, destruction, forgiveness, and love this multi award-winning play, starring Francis Greenslade, promises to be a definite highlight on the 2021 Victorian Arts Calendar.
