Background
Three Days Of Rain had its UK premiere at the Donmar Warehouse in 1999. Beautifully and wittily written, the play presents the actors with the opportunity to shine.  The scenery by Soutra Gilmour is great.  It is refreshing given the abundance of musicals on offer at the moment.  This is the sort of play to rouse thoughts and promote intelligence without hammering any particular point home.


Story
This is more a developing relationship of a family's two generations - pivoting around a funeral re-union. A somewhat nostalgic story shows the later generation getting to know the previous one better by visiting past haunts and finding the diary of the wealthy and successful architect.  The legacy was a 1960s house in New York designed with his late business partner Theo (Harman). The first act is set in 1995, the second act in 1960. McAvoy and Harman play dual roles of fathers and sons.
