Superb! Riveting content. The momentum maintained. Deepest emotions brilliantly conveyed. Wonderful character acting from everybody! Successful venue - when you actually found it...!

David Hare's polemical play combines a variety of views about Rail Privatisation, mostly hostile, with emotionally charged accounts of major rail disasters. The play probably packed more punch in the immediate aftermath of the Potters Bar crash in 2002 but most of the issues raised are still relevant today. Excellent and convincing performances from all the cast in the intriguing space of The Vaults Theatre beneath Waterloo Station.
