Cartwright Plays: v.1: Road, Bed, Two, Rise and Fall of Little Voice

by Jim Cartwright

Road: "A surreal vision of the contemporary urban landscape...uncomfortable and magical, funny and bitter. It is a northern Under Milk Wood, high on pills and booze" (Sunday Times). Bed: "Cartwright writes better about old people than anyone I know, except perhaps Beckett. This is an odd, harrowing and hilarious piece, entirely without sentimentality, sturdy but moving." (John Peter, Sunday Times) Two: "A sharp, salty quickfire evocation of the surface gaiety and underlying melancholia of English pub life." (Michael Billington, The Guardian). The Rise and Fall of Little Voice: "A northern showbiz fairytale, a backstreet Cinderella story, with a built-in kick." (Guardian)
