The Roadless Trip

The Roadless Trip is an urgent and irresistible invitation to imagine a positive future, together.

For Sarah Woods and her teenage daughter Lil, imagining the future was tough. With thoughts of climate change, the recession, the rise in food banks and zombie apocalypses, it all seemed pretty bleak. So in the spring of 2015, together with their production manager John, they travelled the breadth of the UK to ask a whole host of other people what their vision of the future is… because between us, maybe we could try thinking of something better.

The Roadless Trip is about this journey and the people they met along the way. Featuring interviews from five counties, 25 different community groups, including Halton Co-housing project, Homeless Action Group, Barton Community Centre and the Continuing Learning Group at Lancaster University – all on one epic journey on the M6 in an old ambulance called The Tripper

and one epic journey on the M6 in an old ambulance called The Tripper.

Using a mix of performance, film and Saturday-night style gameshows, The Roadless Trip is a show that promises to lift you up even when you’re broken down.

Directed by Emma Bernard, The Roadless Trip is supported by the Ashden Trust, Arts Council England and Arts Council Wales and produced by Artsadmin.
