THE CAUSE OF THUNDER Monday 6 March, 7.30pm PROFESSIONAL THEATRE 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.

These would be some of those times, but you’ll always be saved if you use your voice”. Horse McDonald takes us on a journey from wearing two-tone velvet loons to being one of Scotland’s most celebrated singers, and through those times when she had to be... Careful. Written by Lynn Ferguson and Directed by Maggie Kinloch, ‘Careful’ is Horse McDonald’s spellbinding debut play. Join Horse afterwards for a live audience Q&A with director Maggie Kinloch, as well as hit songs from the last two decades of her illustrious career.” 04 “We cannot be anything but enchanted by this powerful human being.” Arts Award Voice Standard £14 Concession £12
