How long ‘til someone is gone, how long ‘til someone missing, how long ‘til dead?

A rusty old Ute clangs along the highway. Meanwhile, a girl sits in a sticky motel room, curtains drawn, counting the turns of the ceiling fan. When Mel’s best friend, Sarah, goes missing at a music festival she wonders if she is the only one really looking.
Inspired by true events, Miss Sarah looks at the deliberating nature of hope, focusing on the unseen victims of missing person cases, those left behind.

Miss Sarah is a visually arresting show, making use of striking images to unsettle us and draw us in. This shows that you don’t need a West End budget to produce gasps with your design.
— ★★★★ Broadway Baby
With Miss Sarah’s stylishly sparse setting, you’re firmly in post-Sam Shepard territory, where edgy atmosphere drives the narrative and there’s an undercurrent of physicality that subliminally drives the tension.
