Cut the Cord presents I RUN, a new Danish play by Line Mørkeby shining a light on how we talk about death.
A dad loses his 6-year old daughter to cancer, and his world falls apart. He doesn’t know how to process the life-shattering void following her premature death. He starts running to deal with his loss. Only, he can’t stop. He runs through the pain, the memories and the grief to try and find the point where he no longer runs, but soars – the point where he is close to her again.
I RUN is a fast-paced, explosive and moving one-man play about running, grief and missing someone we love. About how you survive the death of your child. It explores how exercise can improve mental health, the rise of male depression, and why we find it so hard to talk about death.
This piercing piece of new writing by award winning Danish playwright Line Mørkeby is brought to the Vault stage for the very first time, following its UK premiere at Drama Centre London in 2018.
