May 2011

Scotland’s foremost touring theatre company Rapture celebrate their tenth anniversary with an unmissable tour of Gregory Burke’s modern classic.

A pair of Fife factory workers kidnap their visiting boss to make a point… but what exactly is their point? And do they all have the same agenda? The jokes come thick and fast in this politically charged satirical thriller about a human heist that goes wrong. Very wrong.

First performed in 2001, Gagarin Way was the breakthrough play from Dunfermline-born Gregory Burke (writer of the phenomenally successful Black Watch) and has been produced all over the world. Rapture Theatre are delighted to celebrate both their and the play’s tenth anniversary with an unmissable UK tour of Burke’s modern classic.

Earthy adult language and high comedy combine to make for a wickedly cruel and deliciously funny night at the theatre with an all-star Scottish cast.
