One For The Road...

The Play

First performed at Manchester Contact Theatre where it was originally advertised as TUPPERWARE MAN. Following legal threats from the Tupperware Company, however, the title was changed to PAINTED VEG AND PARKINSON for its opening in November, directed by Caroline Smith.

 

The play subsequently went through various changes in title and content and finally became known as ONE FOR THE ROAD when Bob Swash produced and Mike Ockrent directed for a national tour starring Alun Armstrong, Elizabeth Estensen and Prunella Scales.

"The four performances are superb, especially that of Alun Armstrong as Dennis.  He plays the part with both lightness and sincerity..."

Alun Armstrong and Prunella Scales


"I cannot remember another play of recent years which has made me laugh so much and at the same time left me so much involved in the feelings of the leading character."
