Set in West Philadelpha during a time of high unemployment, Road by Jim Cartwright, opens this week.
Despite the play's extremely effective portrait of the desperation of people's lives, the script also contains a great deal of humor. Road won the Samuel Beckett Award, Drama Magazine’s Best New Play Award, and
was joint winner of the Plays And Players Award and The George Devine Award. In 1988, Road was produced by The Lincoln Center, New York, and is now considered a modern classic. Curio Theatre will stage Road March 12-April 4 in the Sanctuary of Calvary Church at 815 South 48th St., Phila. Performances are 7 p.m. Thursdays and 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Opening night, March 13, includes a post-show complimentary party. Visit www.curiotheatre.org for more information or call 215-525-1350 for reservations.
