Hay­man play set for Feb at town hall

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Scot­tish ac­tor David Hay­man will bring his new play to Ruther­glen Town Hall on Fri­day, Fe­bru­ary 10.

The Cause of Thun­der fol­lows on from the Pi­ti­less Storm, which was per­formed at the town hall in 2014.

This picks up that story two years on, as Bob Cun­ning­ham walks home from the pub and be­lieves he sees a man as­cend­ing into the sky.

It prompts him to think through a few things 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.

All these thoughts leave Bob 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 show will start at 7.30pm. Tick­ets are £13.50 or £12 for con­ces­sions. They can be bought from the Town Hall in per­son, or­dered by call­ing 0141 613 5700 or booked on­line at www.sll­cbox­of­fice.co.uk
