Sarah Higgins, sfh, is a storyteller in multiple genres -- stage, screen, fiction, graphic forms. She has an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of British Columbia. Her plays have been produced across the country, from the Halifax Fringe Festival, to the NotaBle Acts festival in Fredericton NB, to a One-Act Showcase with Little Mountain Lion Productions and the Brave New Play Rites festival in Vancouver, BC. A work she co-wrote with Falling Iguana Theatre (Toronto) was produced at the Island Fringe Festival in Charlottetown, PEI. She's had staged readings of her work given in Fredericton, Saskatoon and Vancouver, and writes theatre reviews for the literary magazine PRISM international.
sfh also teaches (most recently at the University of British Columbia), and stage manages. Her most recent SM work was with the Falling Iguana show DIANA at the Island Fringe Festival. Other highlights include This Is Now, an original musical by Kate MacColl (Vancouver); Love's Labours Lost with Alchemy Theatre (Vancouver); and the Brave New Play Rites student-written theatre festival (Vancouver).
sfh is currently based in Vancouver, BC but has called several places home: New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Ontario, the Northwest Territories (for a few months) and Ireland* (for a year).
