Sarah Loucks

Artist Statement

As a playwright, I am invested in a nuanced examination of economic inequality in America, the systems that enforce it, and the consequences of such for the American people. I craft working class stories into theater that is visceral and intelligent, employing both a delicacy of psychology and boldness of theatricality. My work often uses dark humor and vernacular to create realistic portraits of American people as they struggle and celebrate, fight and make peace, and search for themselves against the backdrop of a complicated and often frightening country.
