Product Description

About the Author

Sara Tilley's writing spans the genres of playwriting, prose and poetry. She has written, co written or co-created over ten plays to date. Skin Room, her first novel, won both the 2004 Newfoundland and Labrador Percy Janes First Novel Award and the inaugural Fresh Fish Award for Emerging Writers in 2006. Sara has also received several Newfoundland Arts and Letters Awards for playwriting, prose and poetry, and her work has been published in TickleAce and Zeugma Magazine, and featured on CBC Radio. Sara is a graduate of the BFA Acting Program at York University. Her artistic work bridges writing, theatre, and Pochinko Clown Through Mask technique, with each discipline informing and inspiring the others. In 2002, she founded a feminist theatre company, She Said Yes!, and in 2006 received the Rhonda Payne Theatre Award in 2006, which acknowledges the contribution of a woman working in theatre in Newfoundland and Labrador. The balancing act between her life as a writer as well as an actor, clown, director and designer continues to be a joyful and necessary challenge. Sara was born in St. John's, but spent most of her childhood in rural and isolated communities. Her work is inspired by sense memories of life in Brigus South, Newfoundland, Nain, Labrador and Sanikiluaq, in what is now Nunavut. She currently lives in St. John's with her partner, Craig, and their cat.

Format: Paperback
This book is addictive. I couldn't help but be drawn into the life of Teresa the child and Teresa the twentysomething alike. Having experience in the modern day St John's art scene or rural Northern life will help with the understanding of the situations, but the book never feels like a series of in-jokes. The situations are clear in their beauty and their drama. A fascinating, empowering read.
