Gagarin Way is a play by Scottish playwright Gregory Burke, named after a street in the West Fife village of Lumphinnans, on the edge of Cowdenbeath. The play documents the disappearance of socialism from an area where political radicalism was once a defining characteristic of the population. Gagarin Way debuted at the Traverse Theatre,[1] Edinburgh, in July 2001, before transferring to the National Theatre[2] and the West End in London. It was translated into 20 languages and toured the world.
