Award-winning theatre company Engineer take a closer look at London's young bankers
"To what lengths would you go to get the job of your dreams?" Four ambitious twenty-somethings enter the job market. What better way to start than a summer internship at a high-end City bank? Motivated and hungry, they are ready to commit themselves, whatever it takes, to gaining a position at the end. The stakes are high. Developed in conversation with the freshest financial minds and inspired by the true story of Moritz Erhardt, a 21-year-old intern who died at his London flat after reportedly working 72 hours straight, Run is a blackly comic and tragic tale of ambition and personal sacrifice. Blending striking physicality, sound and contemporary design, award-winning theatre company Engineer Theatre Collective have connected directly with the world of finance to expose the glamour and grind of the Square Mile in 2016.
