Gagarin Way

Eddie and Gary, loyal friends who are disheartened by the social justice system in the UK, decide to try to get their revenge by kidnapping a visiting factory manager, who they believe is from Japan, named Frank. However a security guard by the name of Tom troubles their plans of kidnapping Frank, who is not from Japan and is unexpectedly a local boy after all. A human heist goes very wrong in this bitterly funny play that asks tough questions about globalization, political power and individual choice.
