She creates characters and worlds that shock us, and then pulls us into those worlds with her great performances. She's massively talented and is already becoming hugely successful." When to Run is a one person play about four women who have more in common than they think. Written and performed by Sophie Woolley and directed by Gemma Fairlie, When to Run tells the compelling story of four women runners and a man who looks a bit like Tony Soprano. Sophie flits between characters in a beautifully written play of interwoven monologues which are at once hilarious and moving. A neurotic professional, an urban teenage athlete, a secretly miserable life coach and a dog walker who hates exercise. Their lives collide as they pound the pavements of London - with fatal consequences. A must see for runners and couch potatoes alike. "Sophie Woolley's performance is a tour de force." Fringe Three Weeks "Woolley switches accents and mannerisms with ease and her confident performance is very enjoyable." Scotsman "Sophie Woolley's cleverly interwoven monologues are packed with delicious observations. Woolley really brings the characters to life. There is a great story here with strong characters." The Stage "One of the most original young talents in Britain today - and a wonderful performer of her own work. Her use of different voices is astonishing. She's stimulating, exciting and an inspiration." Blake Morrison www.sophiewoolley.com
