    The American Theatre Company Presents 

    “Three Days of Rain”


    Wednesday, 19 February, 2020 - 7.30p.m.

    Join us on Wednesday, February 19 for a special event with The American Theatre Company as they host a post-performance discussion with director Jeremy Zeegers and actors over drinks and nibbles. “Three Days of Rain”, written by Richard Greenberg will be presented at the home of The American Theatre Company, in an intimate studio setting. Here is a synopsis of the play.

    Act 1: New York, a studio in downtown Manhattan, 1995. The three estranged heirs of a world-renowned architect meet again on the day of the reading of his will. As tensions mount, the architect's journal from 1960 is discovered. Hoping to learn the truth about their difficult parents, one son eagerly goes through the text, only to be bitterly disappointed. It's cryptic, distant, unreadable: just like his father. One entry reads simply, "Three days of rain."

    Act 2: sends us back in time to the same studio in downtown Manhattan in 1960, where the same three actors play their fathers and mother, and we learn the poignant truth of what actually happened in those three sad, beautiful days of rain, and how genius and madness and secrets are unknowingly passed down through the generations, to devastating effect. 

    The price includes open seating and the post-performance discussion with drinks and nibbles.

    Please note that this event is limited to 8 participants, so please sign up quickly. The performance on Saturday February 15 is already sold out.

    Because of the intimate nature and lay-out of the theatre, late-comers will not be seated until intermission as late arrivals are disruptive to both the audience and actors.
