Run by Stephen Laughton

Theatre and Physical Theatre • LGBTQIA+

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. 

As the evening’s events unfold - some of them real, some of them imagined - a deeply personal story about first love and infatuation expands to interrogate the difficult intersection of religion and queerness and what it means to love, to lose, to rebel and to grieve.

"Young and old, Jewish or Gentile, LGBTIQ+ or heterosexual - whoever you are, Run will touch your heart and give you a wonderful evening of theatrical pleasure." - LondonTheatre1

"Roach and Stuart’s combined ability to conjure such vivid and concise imagery and environment throughout the show was a true highlight." -Farrago Magazine
