Road by Jim Cartwright, directed by Toby Harris

Under the guidance of the rum-soaked wideboy, Scullery, we are taken on an evening’s tour of a scruffy, depressed road in a small Lancashire town. Moving from street corner to living room, from bedroom to kitchen, we meet the inhabitants young, middle-aged, and old, glimpsing their socially and emotionally wretched lives, in this sharp, sad, funny, and angry play.

We are looking for a strong group of character actors to play 33 characters between you, with ages ranging from pre-teens to seventies. You need to be willing to improvise both in rehearsal and in performance. If you are interested in being part of a close-knit team, looking for a challenge and like the idea of working together on a collaborative, devised piece, then Road is definitely for you.


Join Toby to hear more about the play on Wednesday 13 April at 8pm in the Everyman Clubroom, Chapter.

Friday 6 & 13 May 7 – 10pm
Saturday 7 & 14 May 10 – 5pm

Tuesday 27 November – Saturday 3 December 2022 7:30pm with a matinee at 2:30pm on Saturday
Performances will be in the Seligman Theatre at Chapter
