I’M NOT RUNNING: Performance On Screen
By David Hare

Directed by Neil Armfield (former Artistic Director of Belvoir and joint Artistic Director of Adelaide Festival), don’t miss this explosive new play by David Hare (NT Live: Skylight) captured live on stage at National Theatre, London and screened at Riverside. 

Pauline Gibson has spent her life as a doctor, the inspiring leader of a local health campaign. When she crosses paths with her old boyfriend, a stalwart loyalist in Labour Party politics, she’s faced with an agonising decision.

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

Hare was recently described by The Washington Post as “the premiere political dramatist writing in English.” His other work includes Pravda and Skylight, broadcast by National Theatre Live in 2014.
