Funny, brave and beautifully told, Before It Rains is a tale of parenthood, protection and provocation set on a proud, forgotten Cardiff estate.
Gloria is a single mum who enjoys sitting in her deckchair drinking her troubles away on her allotment, while her gentle son, Michael, digs the soil and makes sure everything is in order. From a relocated, troubled home, Carl - wild, unpredictable and near feral - watches both the mother and son with interest, bouncing his ball.
'A slice of raw life...draws the audience right into the heart of how we cope with intimidation from outside and within.' - The Stage
'Sparse, tense and unnerving' - The Venue
