The bark creeps up my body like a rising sea level. I wonder what will happen when it reaches my heart.

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

A queer urban fable about passion, power and photosynthesis, a contemporary thriller with ancient roots, Rafaella Marcus’s Sap, her first full-length stage play, opened at Roundabout @ Summerhall, as part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, in August 2022.

Critic Reviews

A glorious tapestry of a play.

Critic Reviews

Marcus’ play takes an ancient story and makes it box fresh, with a delicate touch.
