Sarai by Paul Anthony Morris
One woman's epic journey to found a new nation.
Sarai has been promised that she will be the founder of a new nation, its sovereignty established upon an old land.
But first she must contend with the most formidable of forces – famine, disease, persecution and civil war. Her courage and wisdom will be tested to their limits...
Sarai is a breathtaking new work from Fringe First and Adopt a Playwright award-winner Paul Anthony Morris.
Deconstructing an epic narrative for the modern age, this compelling psychological drama lifts the lid on the power of our secret desires, with dynamic movement and an original score.
‘Our Nation shall be a place of safety for no blood will be shed on our account.’
