NT Live: I'm Not Running


The Michael Frayn Theatre at KGS is an official NT Live venue, broadcasting the best of British theatre live from London stages.

Do I run? This is the question which is facing Pauline Gibson. She has spent her life as a doctor, the inspiring leader of a local health campaign. When she crosses paths with her old boyfriend, Jack Gould, a stalwart loyalist in Labour Party politics, she’s faced with an agonising decision.

What’s involved in sacrificing your private life and your peace of mind for something more than a single issue? Does she dare?

This explosive new play from David Hare (Plenty, Skylight, Stuff Happens) portrays the history of a twenty year intimate friendship and its public repercussions.

Siân Brooke (Doctor Foster, Sherlock) plays Pauline. Directed by Neil Armfield, Co-Artistic Director of Adelaide Festival.
