A new play about the front lines of normal life.

Suzie’s at the top of her game. She’s devoted the best years of her life to reporting from the dangerous front lines all over the world.

But even the most resilient foreign correspondents need to come home one day. What happened to Australia while she was away? And what happened to her?

A ratbaggy, wise play by a writer who’s seen it all first hand, and has learnt how to ask the pointed questions.
I’m sure everyone’s familiar with Sally from her work at the ABC. She’s lived more than most of us would if we had several lifetimes. And her play is a remarkable debut. It’s about our complicated world, and it’s full of heart.

Mahboba’s Promise was founded by Mahboba Rawi, an Afghan refugee and now an Australian citizen, who has experienced first-hand the effects of a country torn apart by years of war and civil unrest.

★★★★½: ‘Outstanding’

The Sydney Morning Herald

“Anne-Louise Sarks directs a strong, unfussy production that foregrounds the strengths of Sara’s work”


“Sara is one of Australia’s finest journalists, and you can feel in it Stop Girl’s rigour: the clarity of story; its distillation of truths into top-line events that progress thoughtfully over the course of the play”

The Guardian

“Sheridan Harbridge, as this central character, plays the professionalism and then the breakdown very powerfully”

The Australian

★★★★: “Wonderfully observed background characters, in the form of Suzie’s best friend, her mother and her Afghani born producer demonstrate sensitive and acutely observed writing and acting”


“There is unequivocal passion and honesty in Sara’s writing”
