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

Simply put, Sarah & The Dinosaur is a play about a girl, her cancer, and a dinosaur. 

This is not your typical cancer play.  Sarah & The Dinosaur is an unorthodox, funny, heartbreaking, and honest narrative of one woman and her journey with cancer. In Sarah's world, this cancer has come to her in the form of a Dinosaur. It doesn't look like Barney. It follows her everywhere. It feels guilty. It wants to leave, but it is so hungry.  Through all of this, Sarah fights her Dinosaur and struggles to make peace with what it means to live with terminal cancer. 

Woven into the play are original writings from Sarah’s blog, [Love X Infinity]2 where she chronicles her life with ocular melanoma.  This is the story of her sometimes quirky, sometimes poignant, always courageous, soulful fight with cancer.

We are scheduled to premiere Sarah & The Dinosaur in March of 2012 at the Lee Eshleman Studio Theater at Eastern Mennonite University in Harrisonburg, VA. This is our invitation to you to help support this production. We hope you are inspired to share this journey with us.

Your financial support will help to cover a part of the cost for:  Actors, Directors, Designers, Crew, Sets, Costumes, Posters, Flyers, Marketing, and all that stuff that makes a production possible.  

This play, our hope, and our determination are bigger than this cancer, but we need your support to make it happen. Please donate today.

Every little bit helps...
