As part of Chapter One (in her second year as Lead Artist), Sophie Willan developed a follow up stand-up comedy show, called Branded; exploring her personal experiences and perspectives on Class, Sex-work, Feminism, Identity Politics and the Care System.

The show was an incredible success, garnering her a sell out run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, a Herald Angel Award and a nomination for Best Show at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards 2017.

In 2018, Stories Of Care produced a sell-out national tour of Branded, with an extensive outreach strand, designated for Care Experienced young people and Homeless and Vulnerable adults. Sophie provided writing workshops, mentoring sessions and free tickets to the show, subsidized by Stories Of Care and Arts Council England. Branded achieved a sell out national tour, including a three week run at SOHO Theatre, before heading to Australia for a month long run at the Melbourne Comedy Festival.
