The Stage  

British Theatre Guide  

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 straighter. . . 

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 the novel was shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal in 2021, won the Diverse Book Award & was a Guardian Best Book of 2020.    

Original production co-produced with Mercury Theatre, Colchester, Derby Theatre, York Theatre Royal & the Belgrade Coventry.
