Beyond The Thundercloud

By Nicola McCartney

In May 2006, an extraordinary project led by playwright Nicola McCartney brought together children from the Caucasus and central Russia.

These children have lived their whole lives under the thundercloud of conflict and tension between their two regions, and inevitably fear and prejudice between the groups ran high.

This is the story of McCartney's struggle to negotiate the maze of Russian bureaucracy to enable this divided group to work together, creating plays inspired by their own experiences which would ultimately be performed in one of Moscow's leading theatres.

Cast includes Nicola McCartney, Gabriel Quigley, Nicola Campbell, Michael Gray, Andrew Hawley, Hannah Donaldson and Joseph Arkley.
