FairPley presents David Hayman in The Cause of Thunder
The performance will be approx. 80 mins, with no interval including Q & A at the end
A funny thing happened on the way to the pub… Bob Cunningham thought he saw a man ascend into the sky.
It’s two years after the referendum, and Bob Cunningham has stuff on his mind: whether or not to take early retirement; politics, of course, and what to do about the No vote, Brexit, Corbyn… and that weird thing about rising into the heavens.
To make matters worse he discovers that Ethel, his ex-, who he hasn’t seen in 20 years, will be back in town later tonight.
It puts him in storytelling mood – Bob’s one of life’s raconteurs – all the while trying to decide what to do about Ethel, and whether his life’s work done. Is he finished? Can he come to terms with his, and his country’s, past, and future?
Performed by David Hayman, written by Chris Dolan, directed by David Hayman Jr., produced by Fair Pley.
The Cause of Thunder is the sequel to The Pitiless Storm, performed at the Edinburgh International Fringe (Assembly Rooms 2014) as part of a 45-date sell-out Scottish tour.
There will be a Q&A with David Hayman after the performance, about the play, his career and his work with Spirit Aid. Proceeds from the tour and donations made whilst on tour will be given to Spirit Aid.
