Sarah the Individual

As an actress, scribe and vocalist Sarah “Karma” Wilder is no stranger to being looked down upon as a plus sized woman. She was all too aware of prejudice in the local acting community as she was passed up for roles for which she was suited or cast in limited parts that showed little character growth. Sarah didn’t allow their negative attitudes to hinder her. She has since gone on to receive a Master of Arts degree in Theatre and Bachelor of Arts in English from Wayne State University.

Sarah the Professional

A Detroit, MI resident, Sarah Wilder has performed in local works such as Affairs: One Night Can Change Your Life, Decide Tonight, A Woman Like Ruth and many other works in the city’s theatre and film circuit. Presently, she can be found in the stage play entitled It’s Not Worth Being a Playa, No More by Message of Hope Entertainment, which will run from May 28-30, 2010 at the Paul Robson Theater (inside the Northwest Community Center of Detroit). You can find ticket information by visiting Message of Hope Online.

Sarah in the Community

Ensuring that women of size are portrayed in a more positive light Sarah has gone to great lengths to develop meaning projects that showcase empowered and inspired plus sized women. One such project came into being during her Masters of Arts project in 2009. Entitled The Curve Project (TCP) Sarah set out to prove that women of size could take on serious roles that are motivational and thought provoking. Additionally, it was a chance for audience members to experience a performance where real sized women were represented in a positive way. Sarah is currently working on a final script with extra material not touched up in the original 35 minute piece. She hopes to launch the project sometime near winter 2011. She is also working on several other promising TV and film projects.
