New York City, 1999 – A young man fleeing Dublin 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 smalltime 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, FAIR CITY), previous plays produced by Fishamble, and the Abbey.
‘Duggan writes very well… a deft storyteller with a gift for pacy, punchy narratives and for quick clean characterisations.’ – Fintan O’Toole, IRISH TIMES
