40 years after it was written, Alan Bleasdale’s comedy Down The Dock Road comes to Royal Court Liverpool. The show was a smash hit when it opened in 1976 and this run will see Les Dennis and Andrew Schofield together on stage. It’s Grandad’s last day as a Docker after 40 years’ hard labour. It’s the lads that he’ll miss the most. Mickey the comedian, Dobbo the Croxteth Cassanova and Wonderboy who is a few crates short of a full pallet. Then there is Mad McKenna, tough as nails and the undoubted leader of the pack.
