'Cartwright’s vivid language, with its ugly-beautiful poetry, its rage and compassion, still grabs you by the throat and squeezes, hard.'
Set in 1980s Britain, Road explores the lives of the inhabitants of an unnamed street in a small Lancashire town. Unemployment is high, an unpopular leader is re-elected and the country is recovering from a recession. But tonight, there’s a party to go to.
Poignant, funny and poetic, Road is a portrayal of ordinary people’s lives set against the backdrop of a nation divided.
Jim Cartwright’s Road is 'uncomfortable and magical...funny and bitter...a northern Under Milk Wood' (Sunday Times). Paul Foster directs this production.
Tickets £10 (£5 concessions)
