It is 2026 and Eve, a promising young athlete, is offered a cutting edge new ‘therapy’ by her mysterious, charismatic coach Rayner .

She says it will make her the fastest woman in the world : but is it as safe, legal and ethical as she claims ?

The play, which takes its title from the first rule of the doper’s handbook – deny everything , until you can’t – is a gripping, extraordinary and revealing expose of what it takes to be a champion.

A tale of ambition, love, revenge, jealousy and 21st century science, based on two years research by journalist turned playwright Jonathan

Maitland, is author of “Dead Sheep” and “An Audience With Jimmy Savile ” -the most talked about play of 2015.
