with Sara Shaarawi

This performance has taken place in the past

Join playwright Sara Shaarawi as she talks about the process of writing and developing Sister Radio. We’ll be looking at how a play moves from a seed idea to the page, and eventually to the stage. Sara will chat about her process in writing Sister Radio from early drafts to conducting research to collaborating with the director Caitlin Skinner. We’ll be look at playwriting as a deeply collaborative process, always in conversation with various people, art forms, histories and experiences.
