DESCRIPTION:
A funny thing happened when Bob Cunningham was on the way to the pub…he saw a man ascend into the sky.

David Hayman stars in this one man play.

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, the refugee crisis… 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?

The Cause of Thunder is performed by David Hayman, written by Chris Dolan and directed by David Hayman Jr.
