Why shouldn’t it be true? Why shouldn’t there be a perfect peal which will shake loose a thunder storm every time? I mean, there’s a chance, isn’t there?
The storms are getting worse, with rains so hard that fish are falling from the sky. But the age-old belief prevails – that the pealing of bells can dissipate the thunder and lightning. It’s an extremely dangerous task – one that now falls to lifelong friends Clement and Aspinall – and as the weather worsens, the young men begin to question whether they’ll make it through the night.

Daisy Hall’s comic and deeply moving debut play was a finalist for the Women’s Prize for Playwriting 2024.
