Award-winning cast of Fringe favourite SAP returns to Soho Theatre and a UK tour.

Direct from a critically acclaimed run at Edinburgh Fringe, Atticist, Ellie Keel Productions and MAST Mayflower Studios present a new play based on an old myth, about passion, power, and photosynthesis.

SAP is the transfixing debut play from Rafaella Marcus, directed by Offie-nominated Jessica Lazar (Anna Bella Eema, Arcola Theatre; Outlying Islands, King’s Head Theatre). It became an audience favourite and met with an outstanding critical response at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, gaining an astonishing 21 four- and five-star reviews.

When a woman tells a lie to her girlfriend, a seed is planted that starts to grow in the darkness. Now roots are cracking up through the pavement and branches are coming in at the windows, and – as she starts to see things that no one else can – she becomes the focus of some seriously unwanted attention.

This mesmerising production returns for an extensive UK Tour this spring, including Birmingham Rep, The Marlowe Theatre in Canterbury, and Theatre by the Lake in Keswick.

After being awarded a Stage Edinburgh Award for her performance, Jessica Clark (Versailles, BBC2/ Canal+; The Wife of Willesden, Kiln Theatre; Rotterdam, Trafalgar Studios) will return for the Soho Theatre run and UK Tour. Clark stars alongside Rebecca Banatvala (Much Ado About Nothing, RSC; The Princess Switch 3, Netflix; The Syndicate, BBC).
