The Reviews are in!

New York is falling for First Hand Woman! In this whirlwind adventure, life is certainly feeling more than a little surreal. There have been plenty of highs and lows in this 9-year journey called First Hand Woman and today I’d like to share some BEAUTIFUL quotes.

One More Sleep

Opening night is tomorrow! What a wild ride this First Hand Woman team is on! We arrived in New York City yesterday afternoon, and have had a whirlwind adventure. We debut at FringeNYC tomorrow, and I just have to say how humbled and honoured I am to have such an incredible cast and crew. So […]

Embracing Your Blocks

It all began with a 6-month writer’s block. And with only 8 days left until my stage play First Hand Woman’s American debut at FringeNYC, I’d like to let you in on this little reveal. Back in 2003, I’d attended a screening of a short film that I’d written, directed and produced. It had been doing pretty […]

FIRST HAND WOMAN – The Movie?

Q: Would you ever consider translating this play into a movie or would you want to keep it on stage?  Sarah: Oh I would LOVE to translate First Hand Woman to the big screen. I’m a playwright with a film director’s eye. On top of that, I’m a also Star Wars nerd who also loves The Shawshank […]

Sneak Peek

It’s not too late! With only 9 days left until our NYC debut, I’m sending out a sneak peek of First Hand Woman’s opening monologues. This is going out exclusively to our amazing donors from our recently closed Indiegogo crowd funding campaign  ($25 plus perk level). It’s a bit scary, as I’ve never really released any part […]

The very act of showing this play in New York City is definitely something that I’ll be checking off my bucket list. I hope that you are working away at your dreams. […]

Is That a Stormtrooper in your Pocket?

A little-known secret… about First Hand Woman playwright/producer, Sarah Michelle Brown:   FIRST HAND WOMAN is one woman’s powerful story, told through five different parts of herself. These parts are the boisterous and unapologetic stages of loss. So the characters onstage are Denial, Bargaining, Anger, Depression and Acceptance. This is an exhilarating ride through the stages […]

What if Oprah Asked Me to Spontaneously Sum up First Hand Woman AND Keep My Cool…

Oprah is just one of those amazing people. She’s out there in the world, really going after her life and making things happen. This lil idea came to me and I just let the camera roll. No practice, no planning, just one take (you’ll see)…     Yep, I think I’d need more practice. Lol. […]
