Evening in the city.
In a flat a teenage boy is sorting through play things from his childhood; he is sorting through his past in search of the truth about an accident that destroyed his family. The Father remains silent, is he refusing or unable to speak about it?
The son struggles to know the truth and take control of his future.
Young people today grow up in a world that their parents did not grow up in. So much has changed that the age-old problem of communication is becoming ever more difficult.
In THE ANGRY ROADS internationally renowned playwright Edward Bond has created a unique dramatic way of opening up the problem and revealing what is at stake in it for young people. It takes them on a journey from repression, denial and evasion, leading to understanding and the acceptance of responsibility and freedom, and, finally through rites of passage into the modern world. It is a journey your students will recognise because it is a journey they are already on.
‘The Angry Roads’ by Edward Bond; a challenging and extraordinary play, which considers themes of power, repression and lies, as a teenage boy seeks the truth about a tragic family accident that has left his Father unable to speak or tell the truth about what really happened.
