"The premiere political dramatist writing in English"
-Washington Post (on David Hare)
Master of British drama David Hare (Academy Award nominee for The Reader and The Hours) brings his explosive new play I'm Not Running to the National Theatre. Join us for the broadcast on April 20th at 1pm at the Players!
With all of the intrigue and depth of great political dramas like House of Cards and The Bodyguard, I'm Not Running follows one woman's journey as she navigates the world of campaigning and politics. Pauline Gibson (played by Siân Brooke of BBC's SHERLOCK and DR. FOSTER) 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?
