Road By Jim Cartwright: The Bridge Theatre Training Company

'There's this Road, then there's the slag heap. This is the last stop. All of life is chucked here.'

Road is the first play written by Jim Cartwright, and was first produced in 1986.

The play explores the lives of the people in a deprived, working class area of Lancashire during the government of Margaret Thatcher, a time of high unemployment in the north of England. Despite its explicit nature, it was considered extremely effective in portraying the desperation of people's lives at this time, as well as containing a great deal of humour.

The play won a number of awards and was voted the 36th best play of the 20th century in a poll by the Royal National Theatre.
