ABOUT

The year is 2039. It’s been raining for days when a sudden omen forecasts the end of life on earth. Climate change becomes the companion to a family tree whose branches span four generations and two continents in this intricate story that considers how patterns of abandonment and betrayal shape a damaging legacy that may test the resilience of its inheritors.

Welcome to the world of Andrew Bovell’s When the Rain Stops Falling, opening at the Culbreth Theatre on November 18.

When the Rain Stops Falling will run November 18-20 at 8pm, December 3 & 4 at 8pm, and December 5 at 2pm. Directed by Marianne Kubik. Tickets are $14.00 for adults; $12.00 for UVA faculty and staff, members of the UVA Alumni Association, and seniors; and $8.00 for students. Tickets are available now at the UVA Arts Box Office in the Drama Building on Culbreth Road, and online at https://tickets.artsboxoffice.virginia.edu/events.

When The Rain Stops Falling is a fascinating, intricate puzzle of a play that uses a continuous stream of seamless time-hopping moments to tantalizingly uncover a family’s deepest and darkest secrets – exposing issues of abandonment, destruction, forgiveness, love, and finally, hope, that mirrors the place we find ourselves with the very planet on which we live.
