Funny, brave and beautifully told, Before it Rains by Katherine Chandler is a tale of parenthood, protection and provocation. The play premiered at Bristol Old Vic in September 2012 before transferring to Sherman Cymru, Cardiff.





Before it Rains is set on a proud, forgotten Cardiff estate. Gloria is a single mum who enjoys sitting in her deckchair drinking her troubles away on her allotment, while her gentle son, Michael, digs the soil and makes sure everything is in order. From a relocated, troubled home, Carl - wild, unpredictable and near feral - watches both the mother and son with interest, bouncing his ball.
