Sarah Loucks is a playwright and theatre maker living in Austin, Texas. She aspires to write plays as if they were songs, as if they were science experiments, as if they were myths, where words burn and people fly. She writes about Iowa, where she grew up, and Texas, where she lives now. Sarah produces her plays under the name MouthRadio and is a core member of the Austin physical theatre ensemble, Gale Theatre Company.
In 2015, Sarah produced her play, The Prostitute and the Cow, as MouthRadio’s inaugural production (The VORTEX). With Gale Theatre Co, Sarah wrote Wail, (The VORTEX) which was awarded Best Non-Traditional Theatre by the Central Texas Excellence in Theatre Awards in 2015. She also worked as a dramaturge and creator for Gale’s W.K. (NOLA Fringe, The VORTEX, Houston Fringe). W.K. was nominated for Best Original Script by Broadway World Austin Awards and Best Drama by the B. Iden Payne Awards in 2014. Sarah has studied Viewpoints and Suzuki with Gale Theatre Company, Grotowski technique with Double Edge Theatre, and Commedia dell’arte with the Rhodopi International Theatre Lab in Smolyn, Bulgaria.
Sarah graduated from Bard College with a B.A. in Theatre. She was awarded the Carter Tobin Prize for overall contribution to the theatre program at Bard College in 2013.
