 "I think 12 year old Sarah Kosar would think my life was pretty cool, besides not spending as much time with the Spice Girls as she anticipated I would.”

Playwright Sarah Kosar knows how hard it is to acknowledge your own achievements, but in her rollicking, uplifting piece she encourages us to stand hand-on-hip with a slight smile on our lips and say "I'm proud of what I've achieved."

Sarah Kosar is currently under commission to the Old Vic Theatre to write a new play as part of the Old Vic 12. She is originally from the USA and has lived in the UK for the past nine years. She has been granted an Exceptional Promise in Playwriting visa. 

Her plays include: Mumburger (Old Red Lion, The Archivist’s Gallery), Butter Brain (Broadway Barking Theatre, Theatre Royal Stratford East), Hot Dog (Thinking Cap Theatre, Florida and The Last Refuge, London), Spaghetti Ocean (Staged Reading, Royal Court Theatre Live Lunch), Big Body, Tiny Head (Theatre Local: Pimlico, Royal Court Theatre). Sarah’s play Human Suit was part of the First Drafts Festival at The Yard theatre in July 2017 and longlisted for the Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting. Alongside writing, Sarah is the Head of Talent at the music-tech startup, ROLI.
