This is a new independent stage production of The Boy Who Made It Rain by George Harold Millman, being directed by Ben Hill, and based on the novel by Brian Conaghan.

Parts available:
Mr Curran (male, mid-thirties onwards)
McEvoy (male, late teens)

This production will be performed from 6-8th May, 2016 at St Martin’s Church, Colchester. Rehearsals have already begun and are being held on Monday and Tuesday evenings at Colchester Institute (a complete copy of the rehearsal schedule is available on request).
This production will be paid, but only on a profit share basis.

The play is set in Glasgow and as most of the characters are from this area accents will be required. These will be worked on in rehearsals though, so it is not essential be able to perform them perfectly to start with – just your best attempt will do for now!

We will be happy to show you extracts from the script, and give you any information about the play or our company.
