“This show proved popular at Edinburgh Fringe. With writer and performer Grace Chapman running on stage throughout, this celebration of our ability to keep on going sounds more than a little intriguing. Funny & uplifting.”


One marathon. One milestone birthday. One big decision to make.

‘Today is the day I make a decision Today is the day I run. And you. You shut up!'

Meet Maddy, a typical millennial. Bad at life admin and celebrating her 30th birthday by running a marathon - tied to a balloon. But this is more that just a race. It's a battle. As a woman she is worn down. As a marathon runner, unprepared. By the finish line she needs to have made a decision. Yes or no.

Following a highly successful run at Edinburgh Fringe 2018 (nominated as one of The Guardian's 'Best Shows to See'), internationally renowned Idle Motion return with this ★★★★★ hit from sister company NOVAE theatre. Directed by Ellie Simpson (New Diorama's 'Secret Life of Humans') this is female led new work inventive in its form and astonishing in its delivery.

With writer and performer Grace Chapman running on stage throughout, this is a celebration of our ability to just keep on going. An uproarious, 26.2 mile, one woman tour de force.

Age Guidance 12+
