April 23 – June 6, 2020

Directed by Elizabeth Margolius

“This play delivers the gift that is theatre—magic that sticks to your bones”.  – New York Theater

“SUPERB… a fiendishly ingenious cat’s cradle structure… and it tackles even richer themes: father-son relationships, the past’s ability to devour the future, the cataclysmic nature of the environment.”  The Guardian

Shifting seamlessly from 1959 to 2039, an epic family saga unfolds across two continents and four generations. In the year 2039, rain falls in the desert of Australia as a father waits to reunite with his estranged son. Meanwhile in 1988 London, young Gabriel Law confronts his alcoholic mother about seven cryptic postcards his father sent from the outback. When Gabriel attempts to retrace his father’s footsteps, the past begins to inform the present. Rich and evocative, When The Rain Stops Falling creates a stunning mosaic of secrecy, parentage, and the echoing impact of the trespasses of those who came before.   


Global Perspectives post-show discussions follow each Sunday matinee performance.

Performances take place at Theater Wit (1229 W Belmont) where SGT is a resident company.
