When it Rains

Synopsis:
A play in the form of a live-action existential graphic novel. When the improbable happens, two couples are beset with misfortune, communication fractures, relationships crumble, behavior becomes absurd. People sing, get naked, give up, lose control, have sex with strangers. Some kind of God intervenes. Or observes. Or something. Or nothing.
