The Cause of Thunder
About The Cause of Thunder

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, refugees… that weird thing about rising into the heavens… and not forgetting the letter from Ethel, his ex-.

It puts him in storytelling mood - Bob’s one of life’s raconteurs - all the while trying to decide what to do about retirement and the onset of old age, and whether his life’s work is 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.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Cause of Thunder are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
