What Is the Story of When the Rain Stops Falling?
When the Rain Stops Falling is an ambitious, beautifully acted family drama that moves back and forth in time between 1959 and 2039 and takes place in London and various locations in Australia. The seven characters cover four generations tied together by a dark secret. The play touches on themes of parental love and guilt and how secrets continue to affect families over time. There’s also an environmental aspect (with recurring mentions of rain) that’s especially prevalent in the first and last scene, set in 2039.
