Buy tickets Award-winning Brighton Theatre Collective present this modern classic - 'Road' by Jim Cartwright.

It is 1987 and Margaret Thatcher has just been re-elected for a third term, bringing with her the hugely unpopular community charge. Unemployment rises above three million again. Race riots break out in Leeds. On Black Monday the Wall Street crash leads to 50 Million pounds being wiped off the London Stock Exchange. For the first time Acid house raves are held in the UK.
At the Royal Court Theatre in London a brutal eloquent, angry play about life in a row of terraced houses in Lancashire is taking audiences and critics by storm.

In the course of one wild night, the drunken guide Scullery conducts a tour of his road. A surreal vision of the contemporary urban landscape - uncomfortable and magical, funny and bitter. It is a northern Under Milk Wood, high on pills and booze.

Voted Third best play of the decade - Time Out
Voted in the top fifty plays of all time - National Theatre

Directed by Julian Kerridge whose debut film Seamonsters starring Rita Tushingham was nominated Best Film at the Raindance Film Festival 2012 and won the Grand Jury Prize at the Nantes Film 2012.
