ROAD by Jim Cartwright hammers home two key facts:

  1. Life is long.
  2. Life is hard.

Set in Lancashire, UK, ROAD depicts a rundown, past its prime northern town:  scruffy and depressed but laced with hope.

Sound familiar?

Its inhabitants compel us to look beyond their socially and emotionally miserable lives into what makes them move forward, how they manage to survive their drug and booze driven existence. His characters ask “why is the world so hard”, and “who’s to blame me, us, them or God” finding no answers they show us how and why they go on. How they find hope in the bleak greyness that characterizes their lives.

Sad and funny, angry and courageous, it screams at the indignity that results from chronic unemployment, and suggests that we find our escape in our own way: in our imagination. It intimates that in the end…perhaps the dream of escape is more important than the fact that the reality of escape is unlikely; ‘somehow a somehow a somehow….might escape’: after all,  our lives are written in the everyday exchanges between neighbours and friends that uplift us, encourage us, and ultimately help us to see past the mundane: to see beauty and truth.
