The Low Road
A young entrepreneur sets out on a quest for wealth with priceless ambition and a purse of gold.
Bruce Norris's play The Low Road is a startling fable of free-market economics and cut-throat capitalism. It was premiered at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in March 2013.
'Tis one thing to admire the inescapable cruelty of nature, friend, but quite a different one to encourage it.'
'What a play... rich, turbulent and satirical'Guardian
'A romping, sprawling barnstormer'The Times
'A roguish mix of Henry Fielding and Bertolt Brecht... laudably ambitious in scope and playful in style'Financial Times
'A punchy piece about the excesses of capitalism... plenty of stinging lines'Evening Standard
