“There has been a significant amount of new writing from Ireland so far in the Festival and most of it has delivered. Padraic Walsh’s play about small town Ireland (staged in a mini-bus) comes with acclaimed director Cathal Cleary attached.”


1 taxi. 3 men. 40 minutes to save a family.

It’s 3:00 in the morning. The nightclub is closed. Brian’s adult sons are drunk. And it’s all about to kick off inside his taxi.

Join Brian and his two sons as they eat their messy takeaways and try to talk about how to fix their lives, tonight.

Padraic Walsh's powerfully immersive play, staged entirely within a minibus by award-winning director Cathal Cleary, gets up close and personal with one splintered family in small-town Ireland. Alternately funny and excruciating, Blue Thunder examines manhood, mental health, and what happens when life doesn't go to plan.

Age Guidance 15+
