Thu 1 Jan

HCS LauchPAD Festival


By Jim Cartwright

“This is our road! But tonight it’s your road an’ all!”

Stick with Scullery as he takes you round on an unnamed Northern street. Our drunken tour guide may stumble through living rooms, over cobbles and past lives. You will meet the many bold residents of this forgotten road giving an insight to what life was like in a deprived, yet never boring, Northern community in the 1980’s when unemployment was at its peak.

Jim Cartwright’s classic play is powerful, resonant and will make you laugh with the characters, even as you gasp, cringe and empathise with them… you’ll be alrighhhhtt.
