Meadow Rain would like to say sorry. Sorry for disappearing. Sorry for being a bad friend. And sorry for calling her best friend a rude word. Meadow is also sorry for keeping secrets. Secrets about Terry. Secrets she is now ready to reveal… A funny, touching and visceral piece which seeks to change perceptions of emotional abuse and what a victim can look like. The show has been made with support from Shoreditch Town Hall, Blue Elephant Theatre and partner UK SAYS NO MORE, a campaign to change the societal narrative around domestic abuse.

Such a beautifully written and moving show. Subtle but powerful, i didn't realise how much it had impacted me till I noticed I was crying as I left. Would highly recommend especially if you’re looking for a change of pace during the fringe.

Intelligent theatre, well performed. At times funny, moving and thought provoking. Well worth going to see.

Hannah Moss’ solo show is deceptive. It presents itself as a whimsical and sweet one-woman storytelling show about love, friendship and regret with a dash of audience participation, but it slowly reveals itself to be something more incisive about coercive and controlling relationships. Meadow confides in the audience from the...

Even though the Fringe often includes performers working through and discussing traumatic experience, through everything from confessional stand-up to intentionally obfuscating performance art, it never gets any easier for those not on stage. The Rebirth Of Meadow Rain, through strength of...
