"It’s artful, honest and deeply romantic, whilst still being devastating" - Exeunt Magazine

Gavin Roach presents the Australian Premiere of Run by Stephen Laughton.

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.

Encompassing a world beyond space and time, Stephen Laughton's Run explores what it means to love, to lose, to rebel and how to grieve.

Please be advised that due to current government regulations all visitors over the age of 12 years and 2 months attending Gasworks Arts Park events and performances will be required to show a valid Covid-19 digital certificate of vaccination or medical exemption that has been issued by the Australian Immunization Register, to one of our friendly staff.

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