Sarah Dacey Charles
A long year of Change and Deepening
Hi there and thanks for stopping by!
How ya doin? I know it's been a tough year in so many ways, but I hope the glorious summer season is filling you up with a renewed sense of possibility.
So, What have I been up to? in short, planting and watering creative seeds and paying attention. I've turned to playwriting and I'm currently on the second draft of my first full length play.
Now that the world is starting to open up again, I'm excited to see that our industry is too. I'm so grateful to be getting back into the rehearsal room and on set again. It feels good.
My hope is that after this long year of Covid and social reckoning, there is no going back-- only forward as we work together to tell more truthful and inclusive stories in a work environment that is equitable and safe for all.
Hit and Run, an exciting new TV drama is dropping on Netflix, August 6th. Presuming I'm not on the cutting room floor, I appear in in a short scene with the iconic lead, Lior Raz. (More details to come)
I'm currently in preproduction of an exciting new play, Tracy Jones by Stephen Kaplan. We aim to shoot it as a virtual reading to benefit the Bechdel Group. Streaming release date will be in September 2021.
I recently inhabited the First Lady from Plains,
in Susan Lambert Hatem's timely new play,
CONFIDENCE AND THE SPEECH
on Theatre Row. What an honor!
