The Way Cast BBC One

In a bold new drama titled “The Way,” creators James Graham, Michael Sheen, and Adam Curtis delve into a gripping narrative that unfolds in Port Talbot, focusing on the lives of the Driscoll family. Set against the backdrop of a broken home and a small industrial town, the first episode of this three-part series introduces viewers to Geoff Driscoll, a steelworker who finds himself confronted by someone from his past. Meanwhile, his daughter Thea is pushed to her limits as she navigates the challenges faced by her brother Owen.

As tension escalates within the community, an alarming event sparks panic and prompts a heated meeting that results in a strike. Fearing that unrest may spread beyond Port Talbot’s borders, authorities enforce a lockdown, provoking further anger among residents and leading to a protest march culminating in a violent clash on Station Road.

“The Way” offers an ambitious portrayal of civil uprising through the lens of one family’s experiences. With their hometown no longer offering safety or stability, the Driscolls are compelled to leave behind everything they once knew. Will they succumb to their haunting memories or find solace in forging ahead toward an uncertain future? Through its powerful storytelling and thought-provoking themes, “The Way” provides insight into today’s chaotic world as it follows this ordinary family navigating extraordinary circumstances.

Steffan Rhodri, Mali Harries, Sophie Melville, Aneurin Barnard, Tom Cullen and Mark Lewis Jones star.
