The Long Run image

A captivating, joyful comedy about love, cancer and really long journeys.
When Katie’s mum is diagnosed with bowel cancer her life grinds to a stop. But when she meets an elderly man in a radiotherapy waiting room corridor – everything changes.
One in two of us will get cancer in our lifetimes. It can happen to anyone. People who run the marathon… They’ve only got themselves to blame.
Created by writer-performer Katie Arnstein and directed by incoming New Diorama Artistic Director Bec Martin, The Long Run is a tender, emotionally rich – and frequently hilarious – story about human connection, cancer diagnosis, and long-distance running.
