From the award-winning company that brought you Noughts and Crosses, Crongton Knights and The Bone Sparrow, Pilot Theatre brings another spellbinding adaptation of the very best of recent young adult fiction to the Mercury Theatre.
I am strength
I am power
I am courage
I am revolution
I am Amber Rai
Amber is trapped – by her family’s rules, by their expectations, by her own fears. But on the running track she is completely free. As her body speeds up, the world slows down. And the tangled, mixed up lines in her head get s t r a i g h t e r . . .
It’s time to start a revolution: for her mother, for her sister, for herself.
Run, Amber. Run.
Run Rebel is a world premier adaptation of Manjeet Mann’s Carnegie Medal winning novel. Combining physical theatre and mesmerising visuals, and performed by a multi-talented ensemble this promises to be another landmark co-production made especially for audiences of 11+ but as with their previous celebrated shows: “not just for all ages but for all times”. (Praise for The Bone Sparrow, The Observer)
Co-produced with Mercury Theatre Colchester, Belgrade Theatre Coventry, Derby Theatre and York Theatre Royal.
