A Handful of Rain

Premiere of the play by
Phil Bowen

Hovering somewhere between performance art and fantasy drama, this 40 minute production is a bit of a gem... a sparkling little word game between the two men... You donít need to be a fan of either artist to enjoy the result. But the mood of dreamlike mischief, with the help of Benet Cattyís featherlight direction, is much too charming to resist.

Whatís On

Excellent... great lyrical wordplay... a resonant and poetic 45 minutes.

The Stage

Intriguing... the audience gave the play an enthusiastic ovation... Phil Bowen excellently picks up on the peculiarities of Thomasí and Dylanís way of speaking, effortlessly weaving a fair number of quotations from poems and songs into the mix.

Camden New Journal

This fast-paced 45 minute play... A Handful of Rain is the meeting of youth and fluidity with experience and tradition. This is brisk and stimulating theatre, guaranteed to dominate the dinner tables of all those who see it.

SA Times (South African Times)

Hard core Dylanologists and fans of the Welsh poet will revel in this short, sharp show.

LAM (Living Abroad Magazine)

There are strong shades of Waiting or Godot... it's hard not to be hypnotised by the soft rhythms of actors Peter Gevisser and Peter Read... a bit like a waking dream...
