Sarai has been promised a son, and that she will become the mother of a new nation. What now? Embarking on an epic journey away from her homeland, she must contend with famine, disease, civil war… and the prophecy. Her courage and strength will be tested to their limits.Sarai is a strikingly modern, multi-sensory theatrical experience with powerfully uplifting live music. It breathes new life into an ancient mystery and unravels the stories we live with.

Karlina Grace-Paṣeda, who has appeared in Death and the King’s Horseman andWelcome to Thebes at the National Theatre, plays the title role in this world premiere production from Fringe First award-winner Paul Anthony Morris.
