About the Book

Should I run? This is the question Pauline Gibson is asking herself. She has spent her adult life as a doctor, the inspiring leader of a campaign for local health provision. When she crosses paths with her old boyfriend, Jack Gould, who has made his way in Labour party politics, she's faced with an agonising decision.

What’s involved in sacrificing your private life and your peace of mind for something more than a single issue? Does she dare?

David Hare was recently described by the Washington Post as ‘the premiere political dramatist writing in English.’ His explosive new play portrays the history of a twenty year intimate friendship and its public repercussions.

David Hare’s new play I’m not Running, premieres at the National Theatre, London, in October 2018.
