In recent years she has become a fully-fledged playwright and her largely biographical pieces including Vita! - A Fantasy and She of the Electrolux have been performed in Britain, USA, Canada and Australia. In 2004, Sara was awarded the inaugural Peter Blazey Fellowship at the University of Melbourne for her work on Edna Walling.
