One small woman takes on the world.
‘Wilks makes the physical emotional and the emotional physical. With a background in circus, she moves like a hurt animal but is never not human.
Her performance is unforgettable but it’s almost impossible to separate it from the input of the creative team. Every element is integrated, meaningful and so damnsmart that every choice feels like there could be no other.
The gut-felt anger and complex understanding of Runtis why we go to the theatre’

RUNT is a play about the runts of the world: the lesser, the unwanted, the weak, those without clout, the insignificant.It’s about one small woman’s attempt to take power, to lead the oppressed, to rise up and fight, for equality, fordecency and what’s right.
