It begins with a miracle. On a rainy day in Alice Springs in 2039 a fish falls like manna from heaven to bless the reunion of a father with his long lost son. Perhaps it’s a sign that the pattern of betrayal and abandonment that began on another rainy day in London in 1959 will come to an end.
Who’ll stop the rain? Andrew Bovell’s award-winning When the Rain Stops Falling is powerful storytelling in which the voices of our past echo into our future.
This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council of the Arts’ New Australian Stories Initiative, Arts SA Major Commissions, Brink’s Principal Benefactor Maureen Ritchie and Pratt Foundation.
