ONE FOR THE ROAD
A British comedy by Willy Russell
directed by Bob Bradley
This delightful play by the author of Educating Rita, Shirley Valentine and John, Paul, George, Ringo and Bert is a wickedly observant comedy that finds Dennis, on the eve of his thirty-fifth birthday, making a last ditch attempt to break away from his middle class existence. Imprisoned in Phase Two of the housing estate and surrounded by Tupperware parties, Weight Watchers and wife swapping, he longs to revert to an easy going way of life. He reaches breaking point when neighbours Roger and Jane arrive with presents that epitomize the hated way of life. In between giving directions on the phone to his parents lost in the maze of bungalows and keeping his vandalizing aerosol sprays hidden, Dennis attempts to pack a rucksack.
