23:00, Thu 3rd – Sat 5th May 2012 at ADC Theatre
Easter Week 1
“Try to look unhappy. We’re going to a burial, remember?”
A brother and a sister. A cart and a coffin. A dead man in a box. But is there a clear road to the graveside? There’ll be passage to pay and bridges to cross, the war is barely over and there are men in the woods who are still intent on fighting it...
Funny, tense and thought-provoking, this poignant new play by Harry Baker asks where love and loyalty ends, and pride begins. On at the ADC for a short run only, make sure you see the best of Cambridge’s new writing for 2012.
It’s a clear road, but it goes through dark places.
**** TCS "Its script and its execution were equally absorbing and exquisitely balanced between comedy and heartbreak...thoughtful and poignant... refreshing and enjoyable."
**** Varsity "The fact that A Clear Road takes a coffin on wheels as its inspiration goes some way in describing the bravery and originality of this production.... Magnetically atmospheric."
