Rain (UnWish Theatre)

By | Published on Tuesday 9 August 2011

Amongst an orchard of umbrellas and hanging jars of rainwater, a father and daughter tell the audience of their rain collection through a set of creation stories in this powerful drama. Adam Alcock puts in a competent performance in the role of the father, managing to portray a man caught up in a powerful obsession, but is too young to make his casting entirely believable. Co-star Murray-Fuentes is endearing as his daughter and brings real charm to the play; her innocent portrayal of a young girl is used to upsetting effect in the play’s concluding act. Disappointingly, its interesting central premise never feels wholly developed in what is otherwise a strongly performed piece of interactive theatre.

C, 3 – 29 Aug (not 16), 5.15pm (6.15pm), £8.50 – £10.50, fpp291.
