Sarah is a playwright, theatre practitioner and practice-led researcher. Her verbatim plays engage with communities to tell the shared stories of experience, such as women living with alopecia in bald heads & blue stars, young people navigating mental health and wellbeing in twelve2twentyfive and pilgrims on the Camino de Santiago looking for belonging in Blister. Her research in verbatim theatre extends across the fields of performance, process and impact on the community and her current research focuses on the pedagogy of collaborative theatre making and devised theatre. Her most recent work, Eternity, premiered in QLD in 2017 and an excerpt of the script is published in 'New Writing: The International Journal for the Practice and Theory of Creative Writing'. Sarah's teaching includes community and political theatre, children and young people's theatre and Australian Drama. She is passionate about mentoring theatre practitioners in their creative practice.
