About the Author

Sarah Currie (Playwriting 3, Whitby, ON) is a playwright oscillating wildly between Peterborough, Ontario, and Montreal, Quebec. She finished her undergraduate degree at Queen’s University in 2018, after completing residencies at several Kingston theatre companies (Queen’s Students on Broadway, The Imaginary Theatre Company, Blue Canoe). Currie’s writing focuses on shielding trauma with humour, as evidenced through her continued work at The National Theatre School of Canada, of which she will be graduating in 2021. She currently lives in Montreal, with her boyfriend, and their tiny rubber dinosaur lamp that changes colours when you hit it.
