The Maria

Imagine a world where water comes to play... .

‘From the very first drip, this is terrific fun'
The Guardian

Imagine a world where every drop of water has a life of its own. A world where rainbows form from umbrellas, where fountains spout from plugholes and where eventually the rain really does fall down. Revel in puddles of fun in this magical treat, featuring rather a lot of water!

The creators of Brilliant, The Forest and On Ageing return with a show about drips, drops and downpours. Created especially for 3 and 4 year olds, And the Rain Falls Down is a visually stunning and playful celebration of the watery things of the world.

And the Rain Falls Down has elements of interaction through which your child, if he or she chooses to, could get wet. Please bring a change of clothing and a towel. Changing areas will be provided.

Fevered Sleep's work is produced in association with Fuel.
