When the Rain Stops Falling is a beautifully heartbreaking story that takes us on a journey across time where the acts of the past prove devastating to the next generation. From 1959 to 2039, featuring four generations of a family, the play manages to be epic and astonishingly intimate at the same time. A critically acclaimed production in our 2012 season, which Chris Jones of the Chicago Tribune called "richly textured and searingly honest," Circle will remount the production at the Victory Gardens' Greenhouse space.
Featuring: Anita Hoffman, Catherine Price-Griffin, Katherine Keberlein, Luke Daigle, Luke Renn, Mary Redmon, Nicholas Roy Caesar, Noah Sullivan and Ron Quade
