I've been a theatre student for the last four years, and in that time I have read many a play, but no play has ever made me feel so much like "when the rain stops falling" has.

It's a rich tapestry of complexity, wound so beautifully that it all comes together in the end when the bigger picture is shown. It is a little hard to read (especially if you're not used to reading plays) but If you concentrate, you can see just how cleverly the past/present/future characters all play an important role to the overall tale.

This play will make you fall in love and break your heart all at the same time.
