Photo Flash: First Look at John Tiffany-Helmed ROAD at the Royal Court Theatre

Michelle Fairley, Mark Hadfield, Faye Marsay, Mike Noble, Dan Parr, Lemn Sissay, June Watson, Liz White and Shane Zaza star in Jim Cartwright's game-changing play Road, which opened at the Royal Court in 1986.

It is directed in a new production by Royal Court Associate Director John Tiffany and returns to the Royal Court's Jerwood Theatre Downstairs now through 9 September 2017, opening tonight 28 July. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

With design by Chloe Lamford, lighting by Lee Curran, sound by Gareth Fry and movement by Jonathan Watkins.

"I feel like England's forcing the brain out me head."

A Road, a wild night, a drunken tour guide, a journey to the gutter and the stars and back.

"Why's the world so tough? It's like walking through meat in high heels."

Jim Cartwright's seminal play gives expression to the inhabitants of an unnamed northern road in Eighties Britain.

"Road is coming round us."
