The Permanent Way archiveIn 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.
