Great North Run

By Tom Wells. Will is off to uni, but when challenged to honour a promise to an old friend, he has to choose if he is going to run from his problems, or get his shorts on.

Will promised to do the Great North Run with Em. But when that's not an option, Beyonce, The Black Eyed Peas, The Pharcyde, Moby, the Dixie Chicks, Laura Branigan, Bruce Springsteen, Kate Bush and Florence (and the Machine) become his running mates. A funny sad play by Tom Wells with an incredible playlist.
