A land of unending dark and unconquerable light.
A stranger, larger-than-life and with species in question.
Part hero, part howler, he's a man, a myth, and a metaphor.
A world premiere. A grand experiment and a step into the unknown, to inaugurate our 20th anniversary.
A fable about a fierce little country - Lapland in the post-war years - told in a secluded outdoor corner of our city. Ordinary nature by day, brought to howling life by night...
...in the summer of 2010.

In the year 2039 shifts in the weather have caused the mass extinction of most sea life. Gabriel York, alone in a torrential downpour, finds himself on the receiving end of a long legacy of deception. A fish falls from the sky, a herald of something stronger than betrayals, and the mysteries of his past begin to unfold.
Set in locations ranging from a London flat in 1959 to the coast of southern Australia in 2039, When the Rain Stops Falling stretches across time and place to weave an intricate story of seven people—bound together by blood, circumstance, and love.
Martin Giles directs an all-star cast including Robin Abramson, Bridget Connors, Daina Michelle Griffith, Daniel Krell, Nick Lehane, Zachary Nading, Mary Rawson, John Shepard, and Philip Winters.

Maria de Buenos Aires will cater to all the senses, uniting expressive, live orchestral music, the passionate rhythm of the tango, a surreal poetic text by Horacio Ferrer, and a visual manifestation of that poetry through video created by Joe Seamans. Attack Theatre will perform the iconic tango. Carolina Loyola-Garcia speaks the dramatic poetry in Spanish as the Duende (Goblin) character, mirrored by Karla Boos in English. Argentine mezzo Raquel Winnica sings Maria, Carlos Feliciano the ubiquitous payador, and Buenos Aires bandoneon player Benjamin Bogart leads the ensemble of eight.
