Pearson BTEC HND in Performing Arts (QCF) students from SERC will be entertaining the audience at the SPACE Campus, Bangor on 11th, 12th and 13th May from 7:30pm – 10pm.
Road, written by Jim Cartwright in 1986, will be presented by the Glass Umbrella Theatre Company. In a time of recession and government turmoil in Northern Ireland, similar to recent times, this intriguing tale conveys the desperation and abandonment felt by the lower working class people of a once affluent and bustling seaside town.
The plot gives an insight into the lives of those who feel forgotten by the rest of society during a time of fear through terrorist attacks. It tells the story of a downtrodden street, where the inhabitants feel they have very little to live for.
The vagrant and local drunk Scullery is your tour guide, introducing you to an array of characters all trying to find some kind of escape from their squalid existence.
Jim Cartwright’s play is an arresting mix of humour and pathos, transporting the audience with energy, passion and poetry, leaving you uplifted and reminded of the extraordinary resilience of the human spirit.
Tickets are available to purchase here for £8.
