When It Rains It Pours and In Her Absence

A Night of Two New Plays

"When It Rains, It Pours" explores the edge of the earth, a world constantly in transition, between life and death. Stormshadows, and Keepers of Time complicate matters as six friends, struggling between maturity and innocence, battle with storms both figurative and literal.

The year was 1999.
The place was New York City.
Uptown, the father hosted his nightly radio show on NPR. Crazy Cat Man called in again.
Downtown, the sons had dinner together. It was the first time they had met in three years.
Ever since...you know.
The older son worked at Goldman Sachs and had a wife.
The younger son worked at Starbucks and lived on a boat in Monterey, California.
The sons decided to turn on the radio.
Then something happened.
