Gary and Eddie are making the ultimate political statement and Frank is the nearest target. And Tom? Tom just came back for his hat. A heist gone wrong, political activism at its most extreme, violence as ideology. Gagarin Way, the most exciting and most talked about debut play in years stormed into the West-End following its sell-out season at the Royal National Theatre. Gregory Burke’s debut play stunned audiences when it appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2001. Acclaimed by the critics Gagarin Way won a Fringe First, the Best of the Fringe First Awards and The Scotsman Readers’ Favourite Award. At the Royal 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. Gregory Burke won the 2001 Critics' Circle Award for 'Most Promising Playwright' for this play. Gagarin Way was nominated for the 'Best New Play' award at the 2002 Olivier Awards.
