DIE OR RUN is the third presentation in the ongoing partnership between Hannah Ringham and Glen Neath

The 1980s. Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher has pronounced that 'there is no such thing as society'. Die or Run is about society and politics, self-help and anxiety, big hair and 80s disco.

DIE OR RUN explores worry, social anxiety, panic and how our mental health might be connected to current and inherited political policy

‘Die or Run is both a frighteningly authentic representation of anxiety and a surreal trip that feels like sitting on the edge of a panic attack. It might be one of the weirdest nights at this year’s fringe, but it might also just be one of the best.’ - Francesca Peschier, The Stage ★★★★

‘A bewildering, boldly-executed stream of consciousness performance-piece, Die or Run grapples with panic attacks, disco tracks, and the still searingly-radioactive fallout of Thatcherism.’ - Dave Fargnoli, Exeunt
