When the Rains Come is an epic musical of shamanism, love, and betrayal set in pre-and post- apartheid South Africa. This story reveals how, out of the darkness and fear of oppression, the light of love and the force of destiny can bring hope and a vision of a world where there is “plenty for all.”
