Sarah is currently one of ten playwrights working on Skylines, The Royal Exchange’s project in development with Theatre Centre.

On Wednesday 5 December at 1pm there will be a script in hand performance of their work in progress at The Royal Exchange. Tickets are £3.50 and can be booked via the Exchange box office.

The night will feature other short plays by North West playwrights, a pub quiz, raffle and happy hour at Vault, in the Northern Quarter, on Thursday 6 December at 7pm.
