I'm Not Running is an explosive new political drama exploring personal choices and their public consequences, written by Academy Award-nominated writer David Hare (The Reader, The Hours).

Pauline Gibson is a junior doctor, who becomes the face of a campaign to save her local hospital. She's thrust from angel of the National Health Service, to becoming an independent member of Parliament. In the Houses of Parliament, she crosses paths with her university boyfriend, Jack Gould, a stalwart Labour loyalist, climbing the ranks of the party. As media and public pressure mounts on Pauline to run for the leadership of the Labour party, she faces an agonizing decision.

Cast includes Sian Brooke (Sherlock, Doctor Foster), Joshua McGuire (National Theatre Live: Rosencrantz and Guilenstern are Dead) and Alex Hassell (Grantchester, The Miniaturist).
