To what lengths would you go to get the job of your dreams?

Four ambitious twenty somethings enter the job market. What better way to start than a summer internship at a high end City bank? Motivated and hungry, they are ready to commit themselves, whatever it takes. The stakes are high.

Developed in conversation with the freshest financial minds and inspired by the true story of Moritz Erhardt, a 21-year-old intern who died at his London flat after reportedly working 72 hours straight, RUN is a blackly comic and tragic tale of ambition and personal sacrifice.

‘Equal parts smart, sensitive and excoriating’ (Exeunt)

'This is a brilliant drama...a must see’ (The London Economic)
