Quantum Theatre, has begun an new initiative to bring their productions to different Pittsburgh neighborhoods to expand their audience. Their three upcoming works will be presented in the corridor of communities surrounding Penn Avenue; the next production will be just down the hill, in the Iron City Brewery.
Quantum will have a special community night on Thursday, October 28, hosting a special pre-show party followed by a performance of the play. Neighborhood residents will receive a special discount on this night. For mor information on the discount, call Quantum at.
Quantum has supplied this synopsis of the play:
“In the year 2039 shifts in the weather have caused the mass extinction of most sea life. Gabriel York, alone in a torrential downpour, finds himself on the receiving end of a long legacy of deception. A fish falls from the sky, a herald of something strongerthan betrayals, and the mysteries of his past begin to unfold.
Set in locations ranging from a London flat in 1959 to the coast of southern Australia in 2039, When the Rain Stops Falling stretches across time and place to weave an intricate story of seven people—bound together by blood, circumstance, and love.”
Sounds intriguing–and surely the setting of the old brewery will enhance the mood. For more information about Quantum’s neighborhood initiative, there’s an article in the Bloomfield/Garfield Bulletin (scroll down to page 6), or check here for more information about the company.
