A heartrending drama about family, betrayal and forgiveness, spanning four generations and two hemispheres. From the writer of the award-winning film Lantana.
When the Rain Stops Falling moves from the claustrophobia of a London flat in 1959 to the windswept coast of southern Australia, and into the heart of the Australian desert in 2039.
It interweaves a series of connected stories as seven people confront the mysteries of their past in order to understand their future, revealing how patterns of betrayal, love and abandonment are passed on. Until finally, as the desert is inundated with rain, one young man finds the courage to defy the legacy.'superb... fiendishly ingenious... utterly compelling' - Guardian'a work of gripping mystery and emotional depth... something very special' - Daily Telegraph'extraordinary... grabs you by its imagination, its heartrending originality, its tragic vision' - Sunday Telegraph
