A 20 Stories High Youth Theatre and 84 Theatre Co-Production

An international collaboration as part of Contacting the World Festival

When the skies are dark and gloomy…

And the rain doesn’t stop…

Where is your shelter?

Kelly won’t go outside

Kojo can’t go inside

And the rain won’t stop

With foxes to defeat, crocodiles to ride and mountains to climb and a whole lot of wellington boots, RAIN has been created by 20 Stories High youth theatre in collboration with Iranian company 84 Theater.

This twinning has been part of Contact Theatre’s ground-breaking international theatre festival Contacting the World.
