Sally Stubbs is an award-winning playwright, screenwriter, and educator who sometimes acts, directs, and produces. Much of her writing is inspired by true stories, both personal and historical. Her plays include: Our Ghosts, Wreckage, Herr Beckmann’s People, And Bella Sang With Us, Centurions, Spinning You Home, and Polly in the Penthouse. Sally studied and performed theatre in Canada and abroad. She completed Masters degrees in Art History and Writing at UVic, where she also taught playwriting. She is particularly pleased to have received the Canada Peace Play prize for Herr Beckmann’s People and a Prime Minister’s Award for her work with youth and theatre, and to be a co-founder and advisor of the CASA Project, which aims to support women playwrights living in South Africa. Sally, her partner, and their crazy kitty live in Vancouver, but spend as much time as possible on Vancouver Island.
