About Tetra-Decathlon

Having never set foot on a running track in her life, Lauren Hendry decided to sign up for the Tetra-Decathlon, a grueling 14-event track and field competition. This illuminating 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.

Part of Festival 2018, the cultural programme of the Glasgow 2018 European Championships.
