Synopsis: 

When the Rain Stops Falling is a 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.

    Fish Soup and Bad Weather, Across the Decades

    Charles Isherwood

    March 9, 2010: The forecast is continually gloomy in “When the Rain Stops Falling,” a sorrow-sodden family drama by Andrew Bovell that opened on Monday night at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater. Nobody in Mr. Bovell’s time-skipping saga, sensitively directed by David Cromer (“Our Town”), is ever far from an umbrella, making this Lincoln Center Theater production entirely apposite for the city’s long, strange and soggy winter.

    When the Rain Stops Falling

    David Rooney

    March 8, 2010: Andrew Bovell's screenplay for the 2001 film "Lantana," based on his play "Speaking in Tongues," revealed the Australian writer's facility for probing psychological complexity and intricately layered mystery. So the meticulous time-release storytelling of "When the Rain Stops Falling" should come as no surprise, yet this shattering new play creeps up on you. Its characters are weighted down by cancerous fragments of their past that metastasize across generations to resurface with unsettling inevitability. As intimate as it is apocalyptic, the epic drama is given searing lucidity in David Cromer's insightful production for Lincoln Center Theater.

    When the Rain Stops Falling

    Dan Bacalzo

    March 9, 2010: Abandoned children and neglectful parents abound in Andrew Bovell's poetic and disturbing new drama, When the Rain Stops Falling, now at Lincoln Center's Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater. The complex yet always engrossing play spans 80 years as it looks at the ties that both bind and unravel a family across four generations.

    When the Rain Stops Falling

    Matthew Murray

    March 8, 2010: The most tantalizing ongoing question facing the New York theatre scene these days isn’t “What’s opening next?” or, especially given the economy, “What’s closing next?” It is, in fact, “Is there anything that David Cromer can’t exquisitely direct?” After all, he’s helmed a solid new play (Orson’s Shadow), a breakthrough new musical (Adding Machine), and two revivals (the incomparable Our Town and the merely excellent Brighton Beach Memoirs). But, one must wonder, would his usual magic translate to a play whose intense difficultness propels it constantly toward mediocrity? Based on what Cromer does with When the Rain Stops Falling, the answer is an unequivocal yes.
