Sister Sarah and Serendipity

We’re thrilled to share a quirky short film that has been produced for us by Sister Sarah performing arts company which reveals what we all knew already – that the only way to a woman’s heart is through cheese!

The film was produced following our sponsorship of Sister Sarah’s stage production, Stories of Serendipity, a contemporary dance and storytelling performance exploring unexpected, coincidental and magical encounters by Sarah Hutchinson.

You may have noticed that the name of the performing arts company shares its name with our delicious goat milk cheese and it was Sarah’s timely discovery of our cheese that led to the start of our relationship with her – our own story of serendipity!

Sarah explains: “I had just concluded a meeting with my manager where he proposed the name Sister Sarah for my company – inspired by the so-named character in the musical Guys and Dolls.

“I was giving it consideration as I walked into a health food shop and my eyes fell upon Sister Sarah goats’ cheese, made by High Weald Dairy. I saw it as a sign that the name was a winner and, with a production date looming, also thought it was probably a good idea to give High Weald a call!”

An opportunity not to be missed

Sarah got in touch with us and asked whether we would consider a reciprocal arrangement whereby she would make a short film to help us market our cheese in return for financial support to enable her to take Stories of Serendipity to Edinburgh.

We jumped at the chance and are pleased to say that her Edinburgh run was well received with one review describing the piece as: “theatre that has a quiet magic to it, and brings out your sense of wonder” (Dedee W).

We’re pleased to support Sarah, not only because she has produced a wonderful film to showcase our cheese, but because of her mission to create positive social change through performance and participatory events, including masterclasses at schools and colleges through the charitable arm of the company, the Sister Sarah Trust.
