Synopsis

The Permanent Way

The Permanent Way $7.99

David Hare

Published by Used Copy

In 1991, before an election they did not expect to win, the Conservative government made a fateful decision to privatize the railways

Now, as a result of that privatization, the taxpayer subsidizes rail more lavishly than ever before

In The Permanent Way, David Hare, working with actors from the Out of Joint Company, tells the intricate, madcap story of a dream gone sour, by gathering together the first-hand accounts of those most intimately involved - from every level of the system

Funny, tragic and compelling, the play offers an extraordinary parable of British mis-management that raises questions about the recent history of the country
