SUMMARY

When Mark doesn't qualify for the London 2012 Olympic Games, he becomes a guide for blind marathon runner Becky. But it's not easy being someone else's eyes, or giving up your dreams

Tether is a powerful story of ambition, trust, friendship and the fight to the finish line from Royal Court Young Writers’ Programme graduate Isley Lynn. This striking new play asks challenging questions: What do you do when your dreams don't come true? How long should you hold out hope? Can you truly be happy helping others to succeed? And what if giving in doesn't mean giving up?

Bringing to life a world and a relationship that few know, Tether follows months of research with athletes including eight-time British Paralympic gold medallist Robert Matthews, five-time British Paralympic gold medallist Noel Thatcher and Australian Paralympian Nick Gleeson, as well as British Blind Sport. It is a play with something to say and with Rio 2016 just around the corner, the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe is its ideal showcase.
