3 - 28 August 2022 12:50      Paines Plough Roundabout at Summerhall, Edinburgh

A co-production with Ellie Keel Productions and MAST Mayflower Studios, in association with 45North

A contemporary thriller with ancient roots.


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.

Atticist and Ellie Keel Productions collaborate again with a new play based on an old myth, about passion, power, and photosynthesis.

WARNING: contains distressing themes, scenes of a sexual nature, scenes of sexual violence, strong language / swearing

Closed captioning tablets are available for all performances. Please email with a minimum of 24 hours’ notice ahead of the performance date to book a tablet, or for more information.
