Early Bird: Book before 27 February and save 25%
Set in Spanish Harlem, New York in 1999, RUN / DON’T RUN tells the story of a young man fleeing Dublin who crash lands on the couch of his Irish American cousin, just as this older cousin’s relationship with his girlfriend is imploding. Over the summer, the three cling to the last vestiges of the dying club scene and flirt with small time criminality as storm clouds gather.
Part love triangle, crime thriller and immigrant story.
RUN / DON’T RUN is a provocative and accessible new play from acclaimed writer Gary Duggan (RTE’s AMBER, and FAIR CITY), and previous plays produced by Fishamble, the Abbey Theatre and plays staged in New York.
