She recently directed the UK Premier of Who Will Carry the Word? By Charlotte Delbo. The play focused on the experiences of Delbo and 15 other French female resistance fighters sent to Auschwitz. The cast were made up of 15 international women and it was produced in association with REDRESS (a charity dealing in reparations for torture victims) who we fundraised for and held sold out Q&A sessions with the director of the charity and a survivor of torture from Rwanda.
She also recently directed Soft G’s production of Airswimming by Charlotte Jones which was invited to Istanbul’s International Theatre Festival alongside Saddlers Wells and Tadashi Suzuki’s Electra and is now working closely with Rogue Writers to develop new writing.
Sarah composed the music for both Who Will Carry the Word and Airswimming. They are currently collaborating on UNTitled Theatre’s latest project, Beau Edele, opening at the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
The first play by acclaimed British playwright Charlotte Jones, Airswimming is based on the true story of two middle-class women sent to an asylum in 1920s and locked away for 50 years.
