What's Her Story?
An Oregon and Washington native recently returned to the Pacific Northwest after spending the last seventeen years in New York and San Francisco, Sarah began writing for the stage in her final year of an MFA in Acting at the University of Minnesota when she became fascinated by the “secret” lives of Shakespeare’s female characters in the history plays. After meeting the creative team at Dramahaus in New York, the team embarked on a full Equity production of her first play HER MAJESTY THE KING at HERE in Soho.
During the production of this first play Sarah landed a Creative Services position at Saatchi & Saatchi NYC where she specialized in producing voice overs for radio commercials and managed the creative team for the Toyota Group. Over the years she's had various other producing roles in corporate marketing departments. She also spent four years as a full time Casting Director at Nancy Hayes Casting in San Francisco where she cast many independent films, shorts, and commercials, national and otherwise. She has certificates from The Berkeley Digital Film Institute in Producing and Directing and the Bay Area Video Coalition in Producing and Editing, in addition to an MFA in Acting from the University of Minnesota/Guthrie Theatre and a BA in Theatre Arts from Western Washington University.
Sarah's plays include HER MAJESTY THE KING, AFTERGLOW (A Comedie of Bad Manners), SHE'S HOT, THE STILL HUNT, and LITTLE GUN.
