Sarah Doneghy is an actor, performance artist, writer, and activist. She believes that performance can produce positive change. Her one-person show, Mixed Nut – her personal story about growing up mixed race in West Virginia – shone a light on a racism that many never knew existed. Sarah strives to bring performance to communities where it is not always easily accessible. She has acted and improvised with hospice patients, human trafficking survivors, in prisons, homeless shelters, and most recently with children at an orphanage in Tanzania.

Don't Be Nice is the story of the upstart Bowery Slam Poetry Team, made up of five young African-American, Afro-Hispanic and queer poets, preparing for the national championships. As their coach pushes them past their personal boundaries to write from a painfully honest place, the poets break down, break through, and ultimately write their masterpiece.
