GAGARIN WAY

TUE 16 OCT – SAT 3 NOV

By Gregory Burke
Director Cora Bissett
Designer Emily James

“I’ve always been interested in violence ... I thought I should, ken, maybe try something way a point ... violence way a reason.”

It’s late, and in a dark computer factory, disillusioned workers Eddie and Gary have a plan to make the ultimate political statement: kidnap a member of senior management, and send a message to the world. Their plot starts to unravel when security guard Tom stumbles in on them. Worse still, the kidnapping hasn’t quite gone to plan.

In the towns built on former industries, what’s left for the new generation? The mines have closed; capitalism reigns supreme.

Set in Fife, Gagarin Way addresses the departure of socialist values from a region where political radicalism was once the cornerstone of the community. Written by Gregory Burke (Black Watch) and directed by Cora Bissett (Room, Glasgow Girls, Adam), Gagarin Way offers a stark insight into the harshest realities of Scottish society, tempered with fiery black humour.
