I'm Not Running

A trip to the Lyttelton Theatre, part of the National Theatre complex, means visiting the latest offering from the acclaimed writer David Hare as I’m Not Running continues its memorable look at UK politics via a decades-long friendship.

Starring Siân Brooke and Alex Hassell, I’m Not Running is the latest play from David Hare to delve into the UK political scene and the latest project from a writer whose work has transcended the stage and screen. The result is certain to be something to which audiences will flock, becoming a much talked-about production in late 2018, early 2019.

Siân Brooke plays Pauline Gibson and she has known Jack Gould (Hassell) for many years – in fact, he is a former flame - so when she happens upon him in the Houses of Parliament, having just become an independent MP, an intriguing dilemma starts developing. Pauline is going to have some big decisions to make as the Labour Party leadership battle looms, she is being encouraged to run as a champion of the NHS, and he has his own Party ambitions.

David Hare is one of the UK’s most renowned writers, whose credits include shows like The Power Of Yes, which appeared at the Lyttelton in 2009 and dealt with the financial crisis, The Vertical Hour, The Moderate Soprano, Gethsemane, Amy’s View and Racing Demon, amongst others. His work in film has also brought him international attention, with The Reader and The Hours amongst his biggest hits as a screenwriter.

So I’m Not Running is the latest in a long line of memorable shows. The production runs at the Lyttelton National Theatre on South Bank and continues into 2019.
