Transferring from a highly
successful run at The Broadway Studio in SE6 earlier this
year Road takes you on a rollercoaster ride back to the
north of England in 1987. Meet the characters that use
booze, humour, big hair and even bigger shoulder-pads to get
them through the night. Accompanied by a fantastic
soundtrack that defies anyone to not bob along this is a
corker of a show! Our stellar cast grabs and drags you deep
into their world and invites you to share in their most
hilarious, secret, scary and tragic moments. Guaranteed to
have you crying with laughter and sadness equally, their
outstanding performances will stay with you for days
afterwards. Hilarious, thought-provoking, tragic, brash,
heart-breaking, riotous…the list is endless.
"Excellent cast in a potent mix of filthy gallows humour and
raw social commentary. A powerful, original and entertaining
Alun Hood, Criterian Theatre
"Took me up and down like a Yoyo; Howling with laughter in
one breath, Empathising but wanting to reach out and
hug the character the
next......Will definitely come and see again…"
"First I was taken back to the 80's by the fab soundtrack,
crimped hair and shoulder pads. Next I laughed at the witty
dialogue and sharp humour. And then I experienced the
despair and hopelessness that was the cruel reality of 80's
Britain in the North - I laughed hard, but then had to try
hard not to cry ....….It is just a great show from start to
"A retro, raucous riot of a show! A superb production with a
brilliant cast and a banging soundtrack…"
"Took me back to the 80’s from the minute it began –
harrowing and hilarious at every turn. Fabulous direction
with a very talented cast drew me into this world and made
me never want to leave…"
Victoria Geddes, FMC Publications
"Captivating from start to finish, great interaction with
the audience which made me feel I was re-living it all.
Cracking performances by every member of the cast who
clearly loved the show themselves. Good combination of both
moving and laugh-out-loud moments. Very cool sound-track and
if you grew up in this era I challenge anyone to not look
back with a smile on your face and remember those Friday
nights out with your mates!"
"Moving and poignant yet mixed with laugh out load
moments... any child of the 80's will delight in the
memories of those long forgotten songs of
their youth! A must see..."
