PRESENTED BY PEOPLE'S COMPANY
BY JIM CARTWRIGHT
Meet Scullery, your drunken yet loveable wide-boy guide for the evening, as he takes you for a tour along his ‘road’. Join the residents and glimpse their relationships, their hardships, their highlights and their despair.
Full of Northern humour and gritty characters, ROAD is the award-winning play by Jim Cartwright. Set in Lancashire, under Thatcher’s government, ROAD explores the lives of the working class people living on a derelict street within a small town. It’s a poignant, yet often funny play, about how life really was desperately difficult during a time of high unemployment and uncertainty for the working-classes.
The People’s Company return to the Drum this spring to present this sharp, witty and powerful play by one of our country’s leading playwrights.
