The Rains of Fear

An Irish traveller bets his caravan on a fight with devastating consequences.

The Rains of Fear is a chilling insight into violence and its consequences. It was the winner of Write Now, Synergy’s first national prison playwriting competition. It was performed by professional and ex-prisoner actors.
