The Cause of Thunder

Eastgate Theatre and Arts Centre - Auditorium

The Cause of the Thunder, starring David Hayman. 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. To make matters worse he discovers that Ethel, his ex, who he hasn’t seen in 20 years, will be coming later tonight. Politics, of course, and what to do about the No vote, Corbyn… And that weird thing about rising into the heavens. It puts him in storytelling mood. Bob’s a raconteur. He tells 3 more stories about ascensions, all the while trying to decide what to do about Ethel, and whether his life’s work is done. Is he finished? In his final speech – the story of an entire country ripping itself from the earth and rising up – he comes to terms with his, and his country’s, past, and future.
