It’s 1986, Thatcher’s Britain: jobs and hope are scarce but the party must go on. On the 35th anniversary of Jim Cartwright’s joyous and anarchic masterpiece, with special permission, the residents of Road are relocated to the North East.
We meet them as they prepare to head out for a night on the tiles, a dynamic snapshot of working class life, dazzling us with the extraordinary in the ordinary. It’s a vibrant, funny and moving show celebrating community and the incredible resilience of the human spirit.
Join Northern Stage for a wild night, dance under the glitter ball – but don’t spill your chips in the gutter, in this show which will be Northern Stage’s new artistic director Natalie Ibu’s first show here.
We’ve teamed up with Northern Stage to offer one lucky Living North reader a pair of tickets to see Road on a date of their choice.
