Blue Thunder is an immersive play written to be staged inside a parked 17-seater taxi minibus for an audience of 12 at a time. The Bus will be parked outside Backstage Theatre.
It’s 3am in small-town Ireland. The nightclub is closed. The chipper is chaotic. And down a dark, quiet side-street, exhausted taxi-driver 60 year-old Brian is sitting in his minibus, finished work for the night. But then his two drunk sons call demanding a lift home. They arrive at Brian’s taxi full of booze, songs and stories. It soon becomes clear, though, that one of the lads has a plan to do something horrendous and unforgivable – tonight.
Can his father and his brother stop him or is he about to destroy his life?
