Sarah Gartshore is an emerging playwright from St. Joseph Island who lives in Sudbury. Sarah’s intention, as a playwright, is to offer a platform for voices from the margins. Her play Survivance has received dramaturgical support, a workshop and reading with Pat The Dog Theatre Creation. Survivance will be work-shopped in Stratford with Muriel Miguel, renowned playwright, director and founder of Spider Woman Theatre in New York. Survivance was performed during Shkagamik-Kwe’s National Aboriginal Day celebration at Sudbury Theatre Centre and an excerpt of Survivance will be performed at Native Earth Performing Arts in Toronto this fall during their Weesageechak Begins To Dance Festival, as part of it’s Animikiig Creators offering. Sarah is currently writing ArmHer, a CCA funded, multi-year collaboration with Myths and Mirrors and community members with lived experience in sex work. Sarah is also developing POW!, a play for and about Aboriginal youth, funded by OAC’s Theatre Creators Reserve.
