Bad Roads
  • Edinburgh International Festival

A harrowing and bitterly funny new play about Ukraine at war " seen through the eyes of the women fighting, reporting and enduring the conflict.

Following Bad Roads there will be a discussion with all the writers from the series, hosted by Vicky Featherstone, Artistic Director of the Royal Court. Lola Arias, director ofMINEFIELD, will also join this discussion.

Over the past 20 years, the Royal Courts International Playwrights Programme, with the support of the British Council, has encouraged emerging writers in all parts of the world to address subjects that they felt were urgent in their societies. In more than 70 countries and over 40 languages writers have felt inspired to write provocative new plays that are responding to our changing world and creating unique works for our times.

Over six mornings, an outstanding group of actors and directors will bring to life new plays from some of the worlds most exciting writers.
