Sir David Hare will return to the National Theatre with the latest addition to a wave of plays about the Labour Party.
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?
I’m Not Running is an explosive new play by David Hare, who 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.
National Theatre Live (NT Live) is a groundbreaking initiative to broadcast the best of British theater to cinemas around the world. The Coolidge is proud to serve as a venue for this series of plays — captured live in high-definition — from London’s prestigious National Theatre.
