Sarah Dutton is a writer-director who’s focus is on creating female characters who defy the conventions of “virtuous, vacuous or victimised”.
She works across the forms of TV, Film, Radio and Theatre. She studied MA Dramatic Writing at Central Saint Martins from 2016-2018, where her tutors included John Yorke (BBC) and Phillip Shelley (Channel 4). Her final major projects were the 45′ audio play “Travelling Without Moving” and a 45′ minute TV film “XY”.
Since graduating from her MA, Sarah has self-produced a short stage play at Theatre 503 and had an extract of her audio work produced by Nasty Women UK for The Art of Consent at RichMix. She is currently developing her first short film “Syndrome” with Andrea Riseborough and researching her first feature film “My Dead Body”.
Sarah graduated from her BA in Costume Design from Wimbledon College of Art in 2010. She was a member of the BBC Vision Intake Pool scheme from 2010-2011, and has gone on to have a successful career in Costume for Film and Television. Her credits include Marvellous, Suffragette, War Machine, and The Crown series 2, 3 & 4.
Her years spent on set have exposed her to the work of many talented writers and directors, as well as designers and collaborators from other departments. Sarah draws on all she has learned from her work experience in her writing.
Sarah was shortlisted for the MEAD fellowship award and is a member of the Times Up writers group.
