Production images reveal the ensemble company explode into front rooms, pubs and fish and chip shops throughout a raucous night out on an unnamed Northern street.

Directed by Leeds Playhouse Associate Director Amy Leach (Romeo & JulietQueen of Chapeltown, Leeds Playhouse) and designed by Hayley Grindle (Romeo & Juliet, Leeds Playhouse), Road presents a powerful observation of the everyday lives of the working classes with humour, determination and passion.

Road is the first production performed in the Playhouse’s newly opened Pop-Up theatre, a temporary 350 seat theatre housing a year-long programme of work whilst the main building undergoes major refurbishment.

All performances of Road feature fully integrated Audio Description performed live by members of the company.
