Saher Shah

Saher Shah

Saher is an actor, writer and poet from London. Since leaving behind a career as a Dietitian in the NHS, she has retrained and worked in theatre, voiceover and film. As a writer Saher has been part of the Rosemary Branch Theatre's writers in residency programme Shrill Voices, has been awarded a seed commission by Kahani Arts, and is currently on the MFest writers lab.

Her debut play Vitamin D was awarded ACE funding for an R&D which was shared to a sold-out audience earlier this year. Her writing features strong female leads, South Asian and Muslim characters, unapologetically incorporating British South Asian culture and languages into stories.
