A white woman in her 20s with arms crossed and blonde hair tied up stands with a black person with curly hair, her arms hanging by her sides and shoulders back, slightly to her right and behind her. Both wear sports leggings and tops. They look intensely to the camera, with an athletic track and stadium seating visible beyond.

Fair Play

Audio described in-house.

The clocks are set. The line is drawn. They’ve got a chance to be champions. But at what cost? 

When Ann joins Sophie’s running club she’s thrown into a world of regimented training and pure focus. The two girls couldn’t be more different, but soon their shared passion makes them inseparable – dreaming in lanes and lap-times, waking up picturing Olympic medals, each day stronger and faster…

But set head to head in the run up to the World Championships, they find themselves and their friendship put to the ultimate test. As their relationships, their bodies, and their very identities are pulled into public scrutiny, does being exceptional come at too high a price?

A gripping exploration of the underside of women’s athletics, Fair Play is the new work from Ella Road (The Phlebotomist).
