Some critics termed Andrew Bovell’s recent play the best of 2010. (Last season Cincinnati Playhouse staged his Speaking in Tongues
, a complicated tale of murder, romance and intrigue.) Know Theatre, which has been quiet through the theater season so far, has gathered an array of powerful resources for the regional premiere of When the Rain Stops Falling
. Cincinnati Shakespeare’s Brian Isaac Phillips is staging the intertwining story about the connections between past, present and future, and his cast includes several members of CSC’s acting ensemble, augmented by other standout local performers.
The play spans from 1959 to 2039 and across continents in a world where the rain seems never to cease. It’s focused on four generations and their search for truth. This production promises to compare favorably with Know’s award-winning staging of Angels in America. 8 p.m. Thursday-Saturday. Through March 16. $15-$18. Know Theatre, 1120 Jackson St., Over-the-Rhine. 513-300-5669, knowtheatre.com.
