Gavin Roach presents the New South Wales premiere of Run by Stephen Laughton.
Yonni is a seventeen-year-old gay Jewish kid. His devoutly religious family is preparing for the weekly shabbat, but he can think only about his schoolmate, Adam, with whom he is infatuated.
Encompassing a world that is sometimes real, sometimes imagined - Stephen Laughton's Run explores what it means to love, to lose, to rebel and how to grieve. A deeply personal story about first love and infatuation that expands to interrogate the difficult intersection of religion and queerness.
"Young and old, Jewish or Gentile, LGBTQIA+ or heterosexual - whoever you are, Run will touch your heart and give you a wonderful evening of theatrical pleasure." - LondonTheatre1
"It’s artful, honest and deeply romantic, whilst still being devastatingly in its meditations on modern anti-Semitism." - Exeunt Magazine
