The Meadows, Spode Works , Stoke-on-Trent

Wednesday, 16 Oct - Saturday, 26 Oct

£10.00 - £12.00

The D-Road
A new play Deborah McAndrew
Directed by Conrad Nelson

 

A house stands marooned on a forgotten island of land somewhere between the railway, the Trent and Mersey Canal, and the D-Road. It’s where Liam lives with his Nana. 

Liam and his girlfriend, Lois, dream of the bright lights of Manchester, but how can they leave Nana, with her very peculiar phobia? 

Then a charismatic stranger turns up at the door. Who is he? What does he want? And why is he so interested in Nana’s back garden? 

Following last year's hit production of HOT LANE, Claybody Theatre Company will once again transform the iconic Spode Works to bring you a fabulous night out, with colourful characters in a warm-hearted comedy made in Stoke.

Pre-Show dining is available at Potbank Cafe, through Mosaic Hospitality. To book, please contact Mosaic directly on 0333 247 2013 or by emailing [email protected] Please note some evenings do have a limited capacity, we recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.
