Sara is co-writer on our new project Fib and we feel like she's always been part of KimBo. Here's a little bit more about her.
Sara Bodinar is a screenwriter and playwright based in Nottingham. She works in-house at a London film studio, and is an active member of the Nottingham Playhouse Participation team, leading their Young Critics writing workshop and after Easter, their new Encore Play Readers workshop as well. She is also writer-in-residence at The Nottingham Actors Workshop.
Her first big theatre production ‘There Be Migrants Here, was a political satire written in response to the Brexit referendum decision and was the tale of two Brits forced to seek asylum in Europe. This was produced by Minty Fresh Productions and staged at London’s Theatre503. ‘Shag Marry Murder’, written with Tim Bryn Smith and members of the Actors Workshop was staged at the Nottingham Television Workshop the following year. In more recent years, her one man show ‘Seeking Isolde’, written with and performed by Dan McGarry enjoyed a UK tour, and she was thrilled to be commissioned to write all the plays for The Urban Young Actors Theatre Festival in Leicester.
Fib is Sara’s latest theatre project and one which she is immensely proud to be involved in. “I met Bryony through Adwoa at Minty Fresh a couple of years ago and the whole concept instantly appealed to me. It was exciting and original, with an amazing soundtrack and a strong authentic voice. Bryony is incredibly passionate about the project, a talented writer / actor / musician and just utter delight to write with. She makes me laugh out loud every session! I can’t wait for the R&D in June, in which we’ll see the tragically short life and downfall of 1980s Liverpool musician Mark Thomas recreated and dramatised with a view to showing off the music he performed with 2AM. This is music so good he had the attention of one of the most famous music stars the world has ever known!”
