It’s the hottest day of the year and Alice is travelling home to say an untimely goodbye. One that will leave a hole in her life forever.
Written by Logan Jones and first performed at York Theatre Royal as part of the 2019 TakeOver Festival, The Same Rain That Falls on Me is about family, grief, and finding hope in the face of overwhelming uncertainty. Don’t miss this intimate and powerfully written piece directed by Jay Seldon and performed with ‘precision and grace’ (Unknown Magazine) balancing dark humour and touching pathos in equal measure.
York DramaSoc have presented an eclectic mix of shows at the Edinburgh Fringe in recent years, including One Giant Leap for June by Rachel Flanagan, and dark drama Bad Dog by Royal Court Writers’ Group alumna Ashley Milne. Established in the 1960s, it is one of the most active student drama societies in the country and its membership over the years has included Simon Stephens, Nick Payne, Anthony Horowitz, Penelope Skinner and Hal Cruttenden.
Please note that due to pre-pandemic circumstances, the role of Alice will be shared. One version will be performed by Maria Cook and another by Ella McKeown.
