David Hare's I'M NOT RUNNING
Thursday, January 31 at 2 pm | Members $20 | Public $25

I’m Not Running is an explosive new play by David Hare which explores the modern Labour Party through the lens of a doctor-turned-Member of Parliament and her former boyfriend, a stalwart politician.

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 agonizing decision. What’s involved in sacrificing your private life and your peace of mind for something more than a single issue? Does she dare? Approx 160 mins
David Hare was recently described by The Washington Post as ‘the premiere political dramatist writing in English’. His other works includes
Pravda and Skylight, broadcast by National Theatre Live in 2014.
