Gregory Burke's drama, Gagarin Way, is to transfer from the Cottesloe, where it is currently in rep, to the Arts Theatre, where it will replace The Vagina Monologues. Gagarin Way, which was developed with the NT Studio, was the big hit of the 2001 Edinburgh fringe, and went on to garner rave reviews when it came south to the National.

A study of would-be class-war terrorism, it looks at the kidnapping of an executive at a Scottish factory. The play expresses the frustration of a generation of socialists who have seen the collapse of their ideology and the seeming absence of legitimate avenues to express dissatisfaction with the political, social and economic status quo - mixed with some straightforward sadism.
