The skye times mobile

Scottish film, tv and stage actor David Hayman comes to Portree next month with the play "The Cause of Thunder".

Performed by David Hayman, written by Chris Dolan, directed by David Hayman Jr., and produced by Fair Pley the show can be seen at the Aros on Friday 3 February.

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?

David Hayman said: “Bob is a storyteller. In The Cause of Thunder he’s telling his own story - and asking where he (and each of us) stands. Is his life’s work done? Is he finished? Can he come to terms with his, and his country’s, past, and future?“ 
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.
