Sharon King-Campbell is a playwright, actor, director, producer, storyteller, poet, and scholar with a passion for the connective and change-making power of stories.
As a playwright, her works include Fighting Fire with Snow (World’s End Theatre), Give Me Back (skc originals/FTLOL), Original (skc originals/PerSIStence), and Dayboil, which premiered in 2022 with Ship’s Company Theatre in Parrsboro, NS. She’s been on stage or at the director’s table for more than 80 productions and is happiest when finding the little strands of connective tissue that make up the theatre.
