This new play from emerging talent Sian Carter comes to London's Lyric Hammersmith for a strictly limited run. You will not want to miss this heartbreaking tale of a family facing their grief together but separate.

What is Running with Lions about?

A family drama of love, loss and hope.

Following the death of a loved one, a British-Caribbean family struggles to come to terms with their grief. Isolated by their generational beliefs and challenges to their faith and mental health, they live between the things they do and do not say.

Running With Lions explores the journey of one family’s reconciliation after loss and the rediscovery of love and joy.
