I Hope it’s Not Raining in London is a contemporary, hybrid-experimental theatre piece which sets out to explore our perceived realities and the effects of trauma. The production is directed by Riley McLean.
Young emerging artist, Nicholas Thoroughgood, has written a sophisticated short play, which places two strangers together in a mysterious room. Neither of them has knowledge of where they are currently existing and how they got there. The newest to arrive has no memories whatsoever. Small boxes appear sporadically, containing objects which trigger memories for them both and gradually their significant life stories are remembered and painfully explored.
The cast of four alternates leads each performance.
