Ella Road’s critically acclaimed Fair Play, performed at the Bush Theatre and streaming internationally to the comfort of your living room.
The clocks are set. The line is drawn. They’ve got a chance to be champions. But at what cost?
When Ann joins Sophie’s running club she’s thrown into a world of regimented training and pure focus. The two girls couldn’t be more different, but soon their shared passion makes them inseparable – dreaming in lanes and lap-times, waking up picturing Olympic medals, each day stronger and faster…
But set head to head in the run up to the World Championships, they find themselves and their friendship put to the ultimate test. As their relationships, their bodies, and their very identities are pulled into public scrutiny, does being exceptional come at too high a price?
A gripping exploration of the underside of women’s athletics, Fair Play is the new work from Ella Road (The Phlebotomist) – “the most promising young playwright in Britain” (The Telegraph).
We are proud to be working in partnership with Intersex UK, Holly Greenberry & Dr Payoshni Mitra to realise this production of Fair Play.
