Tetra-Decathlon: premieres 2018

The Tetra-Decathlon is a gruelling 14-event track and field competition, requiring a unique combination of skills to complete. Having never set foot on a running track in her life, Lauren Hendry decided to sign up for the event, joining only a dozen other women in the World Championships.

This amusingly audacious solo show charts Lauren’s journey as she trains for and competes in this most taxing of sporting events, whilst asking pertinent questions about the psychology of sport and what drives us to compete. Tetra-Decathlon is a celebration of coming last, and then coming back for more…

Produced by Showroom in association with Macrobert Arts Centre.
Tetra-Decathlon will premiere and tour as part of Festival 2018
and at Summerhall during the Edinburgh Fringe.

Supported by Festival 2018, the cultural programme of the Glasgow 2018 European Championships. Additional support from Tron Theatre and Tom McGrath Trust.

Suited to small-scale and rural touring, Tetra-Decathlon is now booking for autumn 2018.
60 mins, no interval
