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...

That is how this compelling family saga begins. A play that transport us back and forth in time from one generation to another, from 1959 to 2039, from London to Australia. A series of interconnected stories woven together as four generations of fathers and sons, their mothers, lovers and wives confront their mysteries of the past in order to understand their future; revealing how patterns of betrayal, love and abandonment are passed on, until finally, well into the future, as the desert is inundated with rain, one young man finds the courage to deft the legacy.

From the same pen as last season's beautifully poignant and critically acclaimed ' Things I Know To Be True', Andrew Bovell's 'When The Rain Stops Falling' is a play epic in its scope yet at the same time extraordinarily intimate.
