A dad loses his 6-year old daughter to cancer, and his world falls apart. He doesn’t know how to process the life-shattering void following her premature death. He starts running to deal with his loss. Only, he can’t stop. He runs through the pain, the memories and the grief to try and find the point where he no longer runs, but soars – the point where he is close to her again.
I Run is a fast-paced, explosive and moving one-man play about running, grief and missing someone we love. About how you survive the death of your child. It explores how exercise can improve mental health and why we find it so hard to talk about death.
I RUN is currently running at Edinburgh Fringe Festival following a run at The Vaults Festival earlier this year. It is produced by Cut The Cord Theatre, directed by Camilla Guertler
