BY ANDREW BOVELL
17 MARCH – 18 APRIL 2015
The story takes place between two worlds, between a prediction in 1959 and its outcome eighty years later, through the interconnected stories of two families over four generations.
Gabriel Law leaves London for the wild coast of South Australia, determined to retrace his father Henry’s footsteps in an attempt to unravel the mystery of his disappearance when he was only a boy.
He meets a vulnerable young woman named Gabrielle, and together they journey into the vastness of the Australian desert, sharing their stories and falling in love. Through their interweaving narratives we are led back to the future, to a time of unceasing rain and a day when fish fall from the sky.
Acclaimed Australian writer Andrew Bovell (Lantana) has created an epic investigation of humanity and family, of shared experience and inherited legacies, which asks the question: do we have the capacity to address the damage of the past in the future?
