Auditions for When The Rain Stops Falling

Auditions will be held on 22nd and 23rd November from 2pm – 5pm for Makeshift Broadcast’s production of ‘When the Rain Stops Falling’ by Andrew Bovell. The play will be performed from 4th-7th February 2014 in the Tron Theatre’s Changing House.

“The past is a mystery. And yet perhaps it will be easier to explain than the fish.”

Moving from 1950s London to the Australian desert in 2039, ‘When the Rain Stops Falling’ charts a legacy of abandonment, mysterious disappearances and fish soup in an epic drama that spans four generations across two continents. The sins of the father are visited on the son as secrets and lies send one young man across the hemispheres in search of answers whilst a worldwide environmental disaster unfolds.

Directed by Katherine Nesbitt
Produced by Nina Doherty
Design by Emma Fitzgibbon
