Eve, a promising young athlete, is offered a cutting edge new 'therapy' by her mysterious, charismatic coach. He says it will make her the fastest woman in the world: but is it as safe, legal and ethical as he claims? The play, set in the near future, takes its title from the first rule of the doper's handbook - ‘deny everything, until you can't’. This gripping exposé of what it takes to be a champion is a tale of ambition, love, revenge and 21st century science based on two years of research by journalist turned playwright Jonathan Maitland.
Maitland, is author of previous Park Theatre hits Dead Sheep and An Audience with Jimmy Saville - the most talked about play of 2015.
