MUMBURGER: a new play by Sarah Kosar (World Premiere)

Hail Mum, full of life,
We are with thee.
Blessed art though among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy body.

Tiffany’s mum got hit by a Birdseye truck on the M25. There’s family to call and a coffin to order, but first she has to talk to her dad – and for some reason that’s the toughest thing on her to-do list.

Meanwhile, an oozing paper bag on the doorstep holds a dying wish that will either bring daughter and father together, or drive them further apart.
The Archivist is proud to announce their inaugural Writer in Residence, Sarah Kosar. For the next 12 months, Sarah will be working with The Archivist to premiere productions of her plays, works in progress and live recordings of her podcast, Kin. ​We will be partnering with Sarah on the world premiere of her new play Mumburger (directed by Tommo Fowler) in the Annexe from 10 – 24 July 2016

As a local resident in the area, Sarah’s mission with The Archivist is to create and produce new theatrical work that resonates with the Haggerston community. She aspires to tell stories on stage that are theatrical, dangerous and could not be told in any other medium. Her plays invite us into theatrical worlds that look like our own, but whose twisted mechanics expose the absurdity of human behaviour through their hyperreal, cartoonish register.

Sarah’s credits include Spaghetti Ocean (Reading at Royal Court Theatre, Live Lunch Season – Jerwood Theatre Upstairs), ​Armadillo (Poleroid Theatre, Vault Festival), ​Big Body, Tiny Head (Short Play for Royal Court Theatre Local, Pimlico), Hot Dog (The Last Refuge, London and Thinking Cap Theatre, Florida), Runt (Soho Theatre, Oxford School of Drama), ​Seal (Etch Daily Plays, Pleasance Theatre).

Sarah is also the producer and host of the new iTunes New and Noteworthy podcast, Kin. She works full time as Talent Manager at the music-tech company, ROLI in Dalston. For more information on Sarah, check out her website,
