Three Days of Rain

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.

James McAvoy is regarded as one of the most talented and versatile actors of his generation. His film credits include the critically acclaimed Atonement, for which he received both a Golden Globe and BAFTA nomination for his performance and The Last King Of Scotland which earned him another BAFTA nomination. Theatre credits include Breathing Corpses at the Royal Court, Out in the Open at Hampstead directed by Kathy Burke and Privates on Parade directed by Michael Grandage at the Donmar.

Nigel Harman is perhaps best known from TV’s EastEnders and is soon to lead in Hotel Babylon. Other small screen credits including Lark Rise to Candleford and The Friday Night Club. Theatre credits include The Caretaker at Sheffield and the Tricycle directed by Jamie Lloyd, Privates on Parade at the Donmar and Guys and Dolls in the West End, both directed by Michael Grandage, and The Exonerated at Riverside Studios.
