The 'Sold Out' sign was out at Auckland's Q theatre several times this year, a great sign when live performance has a lot of competition for audiences. Sarah Graham decides on the programme for the purpose-built theatre and she's not from the risk-averse school of theatre programming... quite the reverse. The sell out political drama  Burn Her by Sam Brooks was one of her picks.

Sarah says she's all for pushing theatre-makers and audiences to try something new, and she's trying to reflect the diversity of Auckland's rapidly expanding population.
