A History of Falling Thingsis a delicate and affecting play, which opens with a boy being hit on the head by a shoe falling out of the sky.

Jacqui and Robin are keraunothnetophobiacs – prisoners of their fear of falling things. Restricted to living indoors, Jacqui and Robin meet online even though they live only a few streets away. As their relationship strengthens, despite the gap of open sky between them, they begin to confront their fear and to discover what is real in their lives.

A History of Falling Things is a gentle love story that is fearful, funny and moving. It premiered at the Clwyd Theatr Cymru in 2009.
