The Road to the Sea

BY DON TAYLOR
19 February 2003 — 15 March 2003

“A full blast of fresh sea air. This is a great, galumphing, stuffed-full-of-ideas play... An invigorating blast of air for a fringe often crippled by a lack of intellectual adventure. Don Taylor's play takes the reconciliation between a father and daughter separated for 25 years and ambitiously uses their reunion to investigate the flawed ideals of the 20th century.” Evening Standard

“Relishably intelligent… Jay’s gloom-laden overview still catches the despondent drift of our age and carries a raw urgency as conflict looms once more… You can’t help admiring Taylor’s determination to write a play with such a serious scope, disguising neither the preoccupations nor the prejudices of his generation… Taylor directs with cool precision.” The Daily Telegraph

“A versatile playwright of scrupulous moral and political principles, Don Taylor's characters live public and private lives of passion and commitment. His people, ever in search of truth, are present whenever the issues become most fiercely focused.”What’s On Stage
