Sarah Bitar is an actor, writer, and teaching artist from Lebanon. Since graduating from the Stella Adler School of Acting, she has been living and creating in NYC. Sarah joined us to talk about her experiences in both the Lebanese and New York theater scenes, and the relative challenges of finding space, funding, community, and consistency in each.
Sarah mentions her recent/upcoming projects including:
- Stockade, a thriller film directed by Eric McGinty, in which Sarah plays a Lebanese painter in NYC–amidst her artist visa application process–who takes on a job delivering a mysterious parcel.
- Diss Oriental, a play co-written with Lama el Homaissi, which unpacks stereotypes of Arabs in Western media through a futuristic post-contact lens.
