The Tetra-Decathlon is a gruelling 14-event track and field competition, requiring a unique combination of skills to complete. Having never set foot on a running track in her life, Lauren Hendry decided to sign up for the vent, joining only a dozen other women in the World Championships.
In this amusingly audacious solo theatre production, Lauren tells the story of training and competing in the most taxing of sporting events, whilst asking pertinent questions about the psychology of sport and what drives us to compete. Tetra-Decathlon is a celebration of coming last, and then coming back for more.
Supported by Festival 2018, the cultural programme of the Glasgow 2018 European Championships, and Tron Theatre.
