From the writer of acclaimed Black Watch,presented at 2008 International Festival of the Arts, Gagarin Way is a '...a ton of theatrical dynamite cunningly disguised as a mere Molotov cocktail...' (Guardian)

Gary and Eddie, two factory workers awash with anti-globalism anger, kidnap a visiting Japanese executive. The stage is set for the dramatic release of their manifesto and a statement to the waiting world through political violence.

Only, Frank the exec isn't Japanese; Eddie forgot the balaclavas; Gary's manifesto is a little hazy; and Tom, a young security guard with a degree in political science, has come back for his hat.

With the four men confined to a claustrophobic factory store room, the tension crackles. As each of their stories emerge throughout the play, a visceral and fiercely comic explosion of ideas, beliefs and hopes plays out.

Situated in an inner city factory, join us in Auckland's most unique theatre setting for this darkly comic look at what happens when four men are asked to really define what they stand for.

Directed by the multi-award winning Gareth Reeves (The Cult, Underbelly, Insiders Guide to Love, August: Osage County) and starring Will Wallace (The Cult, We're Here to Help, Jinx Sister), Edward Newborn (Krapp's Last Tape, National Theatre), Kevin Keys (August: Osage County) and Emmett Skilton (Home By Christmas).

Gagrin Way premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2001; where it won a Fringe First, the Best of the Fringe First Awards and The Scotsman Readers' Favourite Award. After its transfer to the National Theatre, following a sell-out run, it was named one of the best plays of 2001 by The Daily Telegraph, The Guardian,
The Observer and Mail on Sunday.
