Quantum Theatre Dress Rehearsal

For 20 years, Quantum Theatre has been Pittsburgh’s foremost experimental theatre company, creating plays across the city in places that aren’t theatres. At the end of the month, they will bring their production of When the Rain Stops Falling to the Iron City Brewery.

The production launches Quantum Theatre’s Neighborhood Initiative, a program designed to increase impact to the communities where their productions are held. Over the course of the next 18 months, Quantum will bring at least three projects to the “Quantum Corridor” – the closely aligned neighborhoods surrounding Penn Avenue, including Garfield, Bloomfield, Friendship, East Liberty, and Lawrenceville.

As part of this new initiative and as an introduction to Quantum, Garfield residents are invited to a special, free dress rehearsal on Wednesday October 27 at 8 p.m. Be among the first to see the Pittsburgh premiere of what Time Magazine calls "an extraordinary new play” by Australian Andrew Bovell.

Seven people, bound together by blood and circumstance, share a story that stretches across time and place, from London in 1959 to the coast of Australia in 2039. Alone in a torrential downpour, one man finds himself on the receiving end of this legacy of secrecy, betrayal… and love. A fish falls from the sky. And the mysteries of his past begin to unfold.

Reservations are required, so please call the Quantum office at 412-697-2929 to confirm your seat for this special dress rehearsal.
