Event Description

Before it Rains: 25 September - 6 October

Funny, brave and beautifully told, Katherine Chandler’s tale of parenthood, protection and provocation looks at how we all develop our own ways of coping with the world, our craving for companionship and the consequences of having either threatened.

On a hard-bitten, back woods Cardiff estate...

Vodka-sloshing single mum Gloria sinks into a deckchair and drinks her troubles away.

Her gentle son, Michael, gamely ploughs the allotment, tends to the soil, and tries to make order of things. From the other side of the tracks, Carl – wild, unpredictable and footloose – watches both with interest, bouncing his ball.

And then a cat gets nailed to a neighbour’s door.

Before It Rains is co-produced with Bristol Old Vic and is part of our commitment to developing Welsh and Wales-based writers.
