Alice Springs in the year 2039. A fish falls from the sky and lands at the feet of Gabriel York. And it still smells of the sea. It’s been raining for days and Gabriel knows something is wrong.
Fifty years earlier his grandfather, Henry Law predicts that fish will fall from the sky heralding a great flood which will end life on earth as we know it.
In an intricate, multi-layered story that spans four generations and two continents, When the Rain Stops Falling explores patterns of betrayal, abandonment, destruction, forgiveness and love. This powerful drama unfolds with humanity, surprising humour and hope, as the past plays out into the future.
‘When the Rain Stops Falling will become an Australian classic.’
