David played Dennis Cain in Willy Russell’s "One for the Road".
Set in 1980’s sprawling suburbia, the action centres around a dinner party at Dennis and Pauline Cain’s semi-detached dormer bungalow on the eve of Dennis’s 40th birthday.

The presence of upwardly-mobile Roger and Jane at the party and Dennis’s Olympic alcohol consumption combine to send the evening spiralling out of control and heading towards a revelation from Dennis that shatters the status quo…
