WHEN THE RAIN STOPS FALLING

  • Starts: 7:30 pm on Wednesday, December 12, 2018
Boston University College of Fine Arts School of Theatre presents WHEN THE RAIN STOPS FALLING | By Andrew Bovell | Directed by Jillian Robertson | 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. "Bovell…has created a quietly spellbinding puzzle of a universe that is as stealthily thrilling and defiantly mystical as it is catastrophically melancholy." —Newsday. | $15 General Admission | $10 BU Alumni | Free with BU ID, at the door, day of performance, subject to availability | bu.edu/cfa/season
