I’m Not Running
BUY TICKETS 7pm Thursday 31 January
PLAY broadcast LIVE from the National Theatre
David Hare’s explosive new play portrays the history of a twenty year intimate friendship and its public repercussions and stars Siân Brooke (Doctor Foster, Sherlock).
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.
It’s all done – as you’d expect – with supreme lightness of touch. Hare retains his facility for the well-turned phrase, the relief of a well-groomed joke. The performances are impeccable; the design, a stylish rotating room (carrying hints of a TV studio) is immaculate; the direction from Neil Armfield squeezes every nuance from the script.
