Having already gained four star reviews in The Herald, The Scotsman, The Times and The Stage, Gagarin Way runs at Dundee Rep until Saturday 3 Nov, and features Brennan Artist Barrie Hunter.
“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 and recent Scotsman Fringe First Award-winning What Girls Are Made Of), Gagarin Way offers a stark insight into the harshest realities of Scottish society, tempered with fiery black humour.
TUE 16 OCT – SAT 3 NOV
