What is the Run Sister Run play about?
"You can't pick your family but if you could, I'd still pick you."
The story of Run Sister Run centres on sisters Connie and Ursula, who are linked by the same beginning but heading in their own two directions in life. The play spans four decades leading up to our modern-day world and explores themes of nurture competing with nature as the two struggle to navigate their everlasting bond. Written by award-winning playwright Chloë Moss, Run Sister Run dares to tackle a story about love, family, and dependence and ask: who gets it right?
