The Scoop 2018
A double bill of The Wizard of Oz and King Arthur
Sarah performed in the summer season at the 800 seater Scoop Amphitheatre in London Bridge. She played the warrior knight Lady Kay in King Arthur directed by Phil Whilmott and
fight directed by Roger Bartlett.
In Wizard of Oz, Sarah performed as a walking, talking Toto the dog;
"The very best thing in this show is Sarah Agha as Toto. She bounds
and barks about as a tail-wagging dog with lots of in-your-face London attitude. It’s a fine performance!"

The Sleeper, Henry C Kremples,
The Sleeper, Anima Theatre Company, 2018
Sarah performed at Amena in The Sleeper at The Space Theatre, The Brighton Fringe and The Stahl. The experimental play by Henry C Kremples was written in the context of the refugee crisis and Sarah used Arabic and English for the role.
Deadly Dialogues, 2017
(London, Edinburgh, New York)
Sarah performed as Syrian refugee Sayidaa in Quilliam International's production of Deadly Dialogues by Nazish Khan and directed by Jessica Lazar. This four-strong ensemble piece consisted of lots of multi-roling, physical theatre and movement. After the Edinburgh Fringe and a nomination for the Amnesty Freedom of Expression Award and the cast were invited to New York City to perform at Quilliam's launch in America.

Operation Magic Carpet (Polka Theatre)
Soon after graduating Sarah was cast as Nomi, the lead role, in Operation Magic Carpet by Samantha Ellis and directed by Rosamunde Hutt. The play ran for two busy months at the 300-seater theatre in Wimbledon. The dynamic, colourful children's play weaved the stories of the Arabian Nights with the realities of being an Arab in today's Britain. The energetic choreography required Sarah to be trained in stage combat with RC Annie for fight scenes with swords, ropes and wolves!
Passionate about new plays, Sarah has participated in countless R&Ds and rehearsed readings. She thoroughly enjoys this process of development and has performed in projects at Soho Theatre, Mercury Theatre, Greenwich Theatre, Playground Theatre, Ovalhouse, Old Theatre Royal Bath and The Yard Theatre.
