Sarah & The Dinosaur

Sarah & The Dinosaur

"A play about a girl, her cancer, and a dinosaur."

Not your typical cancer play. Sarah & The Dinosaur is an unorthodox, funny, heartbreaking, and honest narrative of one woman and her journey with a cancer; that comes to her in the form of a dinosaur. It wants to leave, but it’s so hungry. Sarah fights her Dinosaur and struggles to make peace with what it means to live with terminal cancer.

By Ingrid de Sanctis

“Every story of conversion is a story of blessed defeat."

Pain is God's megaphone to rouse a deaf world.

C.S. Lewis is smug in his convictions about God and His plan for the world until Joy Davidson and her young son enter his life and the bewildered theoretician of love in the abstract finally confronts its direct presence. And how does he reconcile his belief in a benevolent God with pain and suffering?

By William Nicolson
Directed by Barrett Hileman
A co-production with Hit & Myth Productions

Read what Joel Cochrane of Hit & Myth Productions, playing C.S. Lewis wrote about partnering with Fire Exit Theatre for Shadowlands.
