The Permanent Way

The Permanent WayT0127350292
In 1991, before an election they did not expect to win, the Conservative government made a fateful decision to privatise the railways. Now, twelve years later, as a result of that privatisation, the taxpayer subsidises the system more lavishly than ever before. In The Permanent Way, David Hare, tells the intricate, remarkable story of a dream gone sour, by gathering together the first-hand accounts of those most intimately involved - from every level of the railway system. Funny, tragic and compelling, the play offers an extraordinary parable of British mismanagement which raises questions about the recent history of the country.
Author David Hare
