Three Days of Rain explores how the private worlds of one generation are reinterpreted by the next. A tender and surprising story of love lies at the heart of a creative conflict which could never have been imagined by these children. The actors play both generations in this warm, funny and touching play about family and the enigma of parenthood.
Walker Janeway (James McAvoy) and his sister Nan reunite for the reading of their father’s will in the Manhattan loft where he lived. A wealthy architect, Ned’s legacy is the iconic, internationally renowned 1960s New York house designed with his late business partner Theo. Joined by Theo’s son Pip (Nigel Harman), the three childhood friends meet to settle the estate and determine the future of the house. The discovery of a brief entry, “three days of rain”, in Ned’s diary is the only clue to the true story of the previous generation.
