In The Nap, a fast-rising young snooker star (Ben Schnetzer) arrives for a championship tournament only to be confronted by the authorities with a warning about match fixing. Before he knows it, he is forced into underhanded dealings with a cast of eccentric characters that include his ex-convict dad (John Ellison Conlee), his mother (Johanna Day), a quick-tongued manager (Max Gordon Moore), and a renowned gangster (Alexandra Billings).

Completing the cast are 2018 United States National Snooker Champion Ahmed Aly Elsayed, Ethan Hova, Heather Lind, Bhavesh Patel, and Thomas Jay Ryan.

Performances of The Nap began September 5.

The creative team for The Nap also includes David Rockwell (scenic design), Kaye Voyce (costume design), Justin Townsend (lighting design), Lindsay Jones (original music and sound design), Anne Ford-Coates (hair and make-up design), Ben Furey (dialect coach), and Thomas Schall (fight director).
