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. It’s been raining for days and Gabriel knows something is wrong. Eighty years earlier, his grandfather, Henry Law, predicted that, in 2039, fish would fall from the sky heralding a great flood that would overcome the human race. When The Rain Stops Falling takes place between the worlds of these two men – between a prediction in 1959 and its outcome eighty years later.

Through four generations of interconnected stories, from the claustrophobia of a 1950s London flat to the desolate South Australian coast and into the desert heart of Central Australia, Andrew Bovell creates a multi-layered tale of a family for whom voices of the past echo into the future, telling of betrayal, abandonment and love. When The Rain Stops Falling is epic yet intimate, spellbinding and utterly exhilarating theatre.

Kalgoorlie-born writer Andrew Bovell is best known for his award-winning film Lantana and for co-writing the original screenplay for Baz Luhrmann’s Strictly Ballroom.
