Red Dog theatre company presents Andrew Bovell’s award-winning play, When the Rain Stops Falling.

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.

Against a backdrop of cataclysmic climate breakdown, Andrew Bovell’s deeply moving play interweaves the stories of 7 family members across 4 generations and 2 continents in an epic and profound quest for answers – from “Will our world survive us?” to the more personal “How can we survive our own family histories and traumas?”

A story of love, betrayal, abandonment and, ultimately, hope.

Red Dog is a small company with a big reputation producing exhilarating theatre that explores the human condition in all its complexity.
