Tetra-Decathlon

About Tetra-Decathlon

Suitable for ages 12+

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 event, joining only a dozen other women in the World Championships.

This amusingly audacious 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.

Supported by Festival 2018, the cultural programme of the Glasgow 2018 European Championships, Creative Scotland and Tron Theatre.

*please note: a £1 service charge per transaction applies for bookings made by phone or online. There is no service charge for tickets purchased in person or for tickets booked by phone and later collected from the Box Office.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Tetra-Decathlon are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
