The Permanent WayDavid Hare's award-winning play, The Permanent Way, comes to The Vaults this September in a brand-new site-specific production. Having originally premiered in York in 2003, the critically-acclaimed, sell-out production went on to be staged at the National Theatre in 2004. This will be the first revival of the production since that run, bringing the true stories of the botched privatisation of Britain's railways to the atmospheric underground tunnels, suitably located beneath Waterloo Railway Station. Exploring the ways in which we are governed, the staging comes at a very timely moment in British society. Alexander Lass, nominated for Best Director at the 2017 Stage Debut awards, will provide direction.

 

About The Vaults

The Vaults under Waterloo are an intriguing venue that play host to a number of underground events. Prime among them is the annual Vault Festival, an eight-week arts festival at the beginning of the year which encompasses 300 or so shows with a wide-ranging programme of fringe theatre, immersive performances, live music, discussions and late night parties.
