I can't imagine a director being better with new writing than Sarah is. Her insight and vision is inspiring, and she always knows exactly what to say. When she believes in something, she will work and work until it comes to fruition. I owe her my career. (Camilla Whitehill, Writer, currently The Bush Theatre)
