"So she imagines that she breaks free and flies off into the stars and never comes down."


Cannonball follows the young and disillusioned Andrea, taking a darkly comic look at his journey into embracing – or, more likely, rejecting – maturity as he finds his relationship at odds with life as he knows it. Intertwining original film and naturalistic theatre, Cannonball features acerbic wit, sharp dialogue and a heart-wrenching conclusion. Through existential debates, infidelity and drunken games of FIFA, one man must learn that you can’t avoid responsibility forever.


Cannonball secured a sold out show in Theatre503’s Edinburgh Previews season before commencing a three week run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2017 at Greenside @Royal Terrace. During the Fringe, audiences praised it as a “very touching piece of theatre” with an “engaging” and “sharp" script.
