Fight Director for PROBLEM PLAY
Sarah Flanagan (she/they) is a freelance Fight Director, and a Certified Teacher with the Society of American Fight Directors (SAFD). Sarah is also the Coordinator of the National Stage Combat Workshop, which is held annually in Ruston, LA. Sarah works primarily up and down the East Coast; trusty dog and a bag full of swords in tow. They choreograph for plays, musicals, and ballets, and have begun making forays into film. Recent local fight directing credits include Boom (Wellesley Repertory Theatre), Shrike (Fresh Ink), Truth or Consequences (Fresh Ink), Dracula (Umbrella Stage), and Misery (True Rep).
While the bulk of Sarah’s training is with the SAFD, she has also tested/trained with the British Academy of Stage and Screen Combat, Stage Combat Deutschland, the Association for Renaissance Martial Arts, and the Historical European Martial Arts Alliance. When not on the road, you’re mostly likely to find them out on the water in their kayak, or up a tree with a book.
