1987. An unpopular leader is re-elected; the country lives in fear of terrorist attacks and is still reeling from the effects of recession. But for the inhabitants of a derelict Lancashire street, there’s a party to go to. Voted one of the top 50 plays of the 20th Century in a National Theatre poll, Jim Cartwright’s Road is an arresting mix of humour and pathos.
