In Run Sister Run, the award-winning playwright Chloë Moss brings an exploration of sisterhood to Sheffield Crucible Studio. Examining family tensions, dependencies and intimacies, this brand new play spans four decades.

Tender and complicated, sisters Ursula and Connie were once everything to each other. Now, they’re almost strangers. However, when a family secret is uncovered, Connie finds herself compelled to retrace four decades of sisterhood, confronting a web of painful secrets and conflicting loyalties along the way.

Spanning four decades and up to the present day, Run Sister Run raises questions of nature and nurture; two sisters are tethered by their unbreakable bond, sharing the same beginning but heading in different directions. Told from Connie’s perspective, it’s a story about sisterly love and connection; the fragility of relationships and having to face the consequences of your actions.

Award-winning playwright Chloë Moss’ brings a witty and heartfelt exploration of family, class and dependence, and asks what it really means to belong to someone. Directed by Charlotte Bennett, Joint Artistic Director of Paines Plough, the show stars Lucy Ellinson (who recently played Macbeth at the Royal Exchange), Helena Lymbery, Lucas Button and Silas Carson.

This is a co-production between Sheffield Theatres and Soho Theatre,  The show will open at the Crucible Studio, Sheffield before transferring to the Soho Theatre, London in March.
