“Two people, trapped in a room. One is almost finished but the other is not yet ready. The other will be ready, but just not yet.”

In June/July this year, a team of six queer young artists from Bearfoot Theatre will be touring from Newcastle to the Central Coast, Sydney and Melbourne! They will perform sixteen times at six different venues in two states.

I Hope it’s Not Raining in London is a contemporary, hybrid-experimental theatre piece which sets out to explore our perceived realities and the effects of trauma. Young emerging artist, Nicholas Thoroughgood, has written a sophisticated short play, which places two strangers together in a mysterious room. Neither of them has knowledge of where they are currently existing and how they got there- and the newest to arrive has no memories whatsoever. Small boxes appear sporadically- containing objects which trigger memories for them both and gradually their significant life stories are remembered and painfully explored.

IHINRIL was originally produced by Bearfoot Theatre in July 2018, directed by Riley McLean with a cast including Cassie Hamilton, Taylor Reece, Nicholas Thoroughgood and Jack Twelvetree. This production was nominated for 3 City of Newcastle Drama Association Awards: Best New Work, Best Ensemble and Best Direction.

The script has since been developed and two of the performers recast. Although all four actors appear in every performance, they alternate roles- taking in turn to play the leading characters. There are four possible combinations to see with a unique experience each time!

The production contains strobe lights, loud noises and mature themes including language, violence, sex, assault and suicide. Suitable 14+
