On a hard-bitten, back woods Cardiff estate...
Vodka-sloshing single mum Gloria sinks into a deckchair and drinks her troubles away.
Her gentle son, Michael, gamely ploughs the allotment, tends to the soil, and tries to make order of things.
From the other side of the tracks, Carl - wild, unpredictable and footloose - watches both with interest, bouncing his ball.
And then a cat gets nailed to a neighbour's door.
Funny, brave and beautifully told, Katherine Chandler's tale of parenthood, protection and provocation looks at how we all develop our own ways of coping with the world, our craving for companionship and the consequences of having either threatened.
Before It Rains is co-produced with Sherman Cymru in Cardiff and forms part of our work with other theatres and local writers throughout the South West and Wales.
A moving, vibrant, urgent play about Cardiff - and everywhere else for that matter.
