Trivia

Lesley Sharp's big scene as Valerie involved an 8-minute soliloquy while she is walking along the streets between back-to-back houses. Given the length of the scene, and the chances of either her or the crew making a mistake, it took sixteen takes to film. Lesley Sharp estimates that she walked a total of five miles while filming the scene! See more »

Road
31 October 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

i was lucky enough to appear in a performance of Road, and i have to say its one of the emotional experiences you can ever do. the characters are so well written, and so real that you almost feel that you are them. I'm trying to convince my theatre company to do it now, it is definitely a play everyone should see. especially if your an avid Kevin smith or even Shakespeare fan, see it and you'll kind of get my meaning. The most amazing thing about it is that it's a promenade play, which mean the audience stand while the actors walk around them, and you actually stand in the road, as an actor is a daunting task, and watching our version now, i still get a chill during some of the darker scenes
