A play about railway privatisation has moved audiences to tears.

The Permanent Way is at the National Theatre in London until 1 May 2004.

There are still some tickets available for David Hare's "docu-play" about the railway industry.

It is described as a "must-see piece of theatre" for anyone who cares about the current state of our railways.

David Hare uses powerful real life stories to examine Britain's loved and loathed railway industry.

The Observer says: "Audiences have been stunned and moved to tears."

The Sunday Express: "If you seriously want simultaneously to be challenged, stimulated, provoked and saddened, do not miss this... a gripping, angry and important critical documentary."

Daily Telegraph: "Hare's devastating analysis of what has gone wrong with our railways since privatisation... superbly edited, directed and acted, it enthralls and enlightens its audience, and leaves the viewer both angry and moved."

Only £25 tickets are now available from the NT Box Office on 020 7452 3000 or online at www.nationaltheatre.org.uk.
