LONDON – David Hare’s award-winning play roars to life in a provocative new site-specific staging performed in The Vaults, London’s alternative subterranean venue beneath Waterloo Station.

Revelatory, witty, and moving, The Permanent Way is an astonishing interrogation of the chaos arising from the botched privatisation of Britain’s railways. Told through the first-hand accounts of those involved at every level, from passengers to Civil Service mandarins, this extraordinary piece of verbatim theatre asks challenging questions of responsibility and governmental mismanagement. Have we learned anything from recent history?

Directed by Alexander Lass, this production marks the first London revival since the play’s critically acclaimed run at the National Theatre. Casting to be announced.

The Permanent Way runs from 13th September to 17th November 2019 at the Vaults. Tickets available here
