Patience and Bird are waiting for rain in the dry, dusty heat of the American desert. Clanky Jane arrives with her ‘Cloud-O-Matic’ machine, but will some crazy percussion and a bit of magic make the rain come?

Featuring captivating visual effects, puppetry, live music and a sprinkling of water.

What is a Relaxed Performance?

The show is tailored for anyone who feel they would benefit from a more relaxed performance environment.

This means:

  • the lights in the audience will be up so that it's not too dark
  • you can make noise during the show
  • you can come and go as you please
  • if you need a break there are chill out areas in the foyer
  • we made small changes to the lights and sound (such as taking out strobes lights) so that the performance is more accessible if you have sensory sensitivities
