Award-winning playwright to screen latest work at Marine

‘I’M Not Running’ is the seventeenth play by David Hare for the National Theatre, and will broadcast live to the Marine Theatre in Lyme Regis.

This title, to be screening on Thursday, January 31, is included in the Marine’s £5 ticket scheme for under 18s.

David Hare is one of the country’s best known playwrights, with two Academy Award nominations, three Golden Globe nominations, a BAFTA, and three Tony awards.

In the play, Pauline Gibson has spent her life as a doctor, the inspiring leader of a local health campaign. When she crosses paths with her old boyfriend, a stalwart loyalist in Labour Party politics, she’s faced with an agonising decision.

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

Hare was recently described by The Washington Post as ‘the premiere political dramatist writing in English’. His other work includes ‘Pravda and Skylight’, broadcast by National Theatre Live in 2014.

‘I’m Not Running’ will be screened on Thursday, January 31 with the bar opening at 6pm for a 7pm start.

Tickets cost £11 in advance or £13,50 on the door for adults with 10% off for Theatre Friends, and just £5 for under 18s. To book, call 01297 442138 or visit
