Big Idea Theatre’s “Unbound” 2014 season kicks off Friday, Jan. 10, with the opening of “When the Rain Stops Falling” by Andrew Bovell. This production is directed by Kirk Blackinton.

It’s raining. Gabriel York is anxiously awaiting the arrival of the son he abandoned decades ago. “I know what he wants. He wants what all young men want from their fathers. He wants to know who he is. Where he comes from. Where he belongs. And for the life of me I don’t know what to tell him.”

Thus begins this compelling family saga that brings audiences on an intricate, heart-breaking journey from one generation to another, from 1959 to 2039, from London to Australia. Telling the story of four generations of fathers and sons, their mothers, lovers and wives, the play is epic in its scope, yet at the same time extraordinarily intimate.

When the Rain Stops Falling” plays at Big Idea Theatre, 1616 Del Paso Blvd. in Sacramento, Jan. 10 through Feb. 6. Showtimes are 8 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday. General admission tickets are $16 online and $20 at the door; students, seniors and SARTA pay $14/$18 and all Thrifty Thursday tickets cost $10. Groups of 10 or more also pay $10; reservations encouraged.
