Devil's Food Cake


Putney Theatre Company


From the team behind ‘The Plague Thing’ and ‘Stranded’ for Online@theSpaceUK at Edinburgh Fringe 2020 (both winners of OnComm commendations). Jenny and Frank are at their wits' end. Daughter Sophie won't eat. And her sister Katie is frantic with worry. The four of them sign up for family therapy sessions with psychologist Jasmine. Can Jenny tempt Sophie with her strawberry pavlova? Can Jasmine’s animal analogies help them find a way forward? Or will the mysterious Ana thwart all attempts at recovery? A drama written in lockdown for Zoom. Written and directed by Marcia Kelson.

Content warning: the play addresses issues around eating disorders that some people may find triggering.
