In the darkest recesses of Ukraine in 2014, a war is raging. A journalist takes a research trip to the front line. Teenage girls wait for soldiers on benches. A medic mourns her lover killed in action. A heartbreaking, powerful, and bitterly comic account of what it is to be a woman in wartime.

‘Bad Roads’ was commissioned by Royal Court Theatre.
