"Run", written by Stephen Laughton, is a moving story with touches of humour. At first, the one man play reads as realistic as a screenplay, with teenager Yonni fumbling over phrases to bring us into his family home. Then, the play flirts with poetry as Yonni's mind wonders to 'you'.
Actor Jonathan Smeed does Laughton's beautiful writing justice by hitting every emotional beat in the script. I can't believe it is his first time at the Edinburgh Fringe.
