Box office for 'Rain' now open, free tickets for Wesleyan students

09.06.2016 | By: Texas Wesleyan University

Theatre Wesleyan is pleased to present the first production of the 2016-17 season When The Rain Stops Falling By Andrew Bovell.

It's raining. Gabriel York is awaiting the arrival of his grown son whom he hasn't seen since he was seven. "I know what he wants. He wants what all young men want from their fathers. He wants to know who he is. Where he comes from. Where he belongs. And for the life of me, I don't know what to tell him." That's the beginning of this compelling family saga that takes us back and forth in time from one generation to another, from 1959 to 2039, from London to Australia. With four generations of fathers and sons, their mothers, lovers and wives, the play is epic in its scope, yet at the same time extraordinarily intimate.

When The Rain Stops Falling will be directed by Theatre Department Chair, Bryan Stevenson, and will open on Sept.22 for a limited run of seven performances through Oct. 2. Click here to view the cast and production team.
