One for the Road

On Sale Now

Written by Willy Russell
Directed by Ken Cotterill
From the author of Shirley Valentine and Educating Rita comes a hilarious comedy set on a housing estate in northern England.

On the eve of his fortieth birthday Dennis Cain makes a last-ditch attempt to break away from the straight jacket of suburban life. As his wife Pauline and his best friends Jane and Roger prepare a birthday celebration Dennis plans his escape. Meanwhile, a spate of vandalism has broken out on the estate, with Roger's vegetable patch a victim of artistic desecration.  Dennis's mood gets even darker when Roger forces Dennis into a game of 'Parkinson,' which is a take-off of the famous Michael Parkinson interviews. With the evening meal burnt to buggery and Pauline at her wits end, Dennis finally heads off, rucksack and guitar in hand, for the open road.  But for Dennis things don't go exactly to plan...
