About the event
The Rain God is a science-fable for the fake news generation. Half camp-fire legend, half meteorological documentary, and performed with a live original score: this one-woman show tells the mysterious true story of Charles Mallory Hatfield – a man who made it rain.
Was he a conman? A scientist? Some kind of weather-wizard?
The Rain God tells the true story of Charles, from the cautious and curious perspective of Jack – at times a modern-day scientist, and at others a confused child in his storm-battered bedroom.
This one-woman show plays with our perceptions of truths and facts – and begins by sticking two fingers up at classic gender roles: telling the usual ‘genius men of history’ narrative with a female at the front and centre.
