About

Pilot Theatre brings you an electrifying adaptation of Manjeet Mann’s acclaimed novel.

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 . . .

This landmark production made especially for audiences of 11+ combines physical theatre, mesmerising visuals and a talented ensemble cast, setting the stage for a transformative story of revolution, empowerment and courage.

Run, Rebel was shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal 2021, a Scotsman’s Best Books for Teens and Guardian’s Best Books of 2020.

Run, Rebel is part of the Traverse's £1 Ticket Project.
