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, so he starts running to deal with his loss. I Run is a fast-paced and moving one-man play about how you survive the death of your child. It explores how exercise can improve mental health and why we find it so hard to talk about death. The performer runs on a treadmill throughout the entire show. The text is written by Danish playwright Line Mørkeby and directed by Danish director Camilla Gürtler. I Run is part of Death on the Fringe.
