About the team

Sara Lynne Wright (actor/screenwriter/producer)

The script for “Trixie’s Score” was born when screenwriter Sara Wright created a high-school valedictorian so inspired by D.H. Lawrence that she applies his writings in her quest to lose her virginity before graduation – and succeeds in unexpected ways.

Sara previously teamed with co-star Jonah Priour as undergraduates at Harvard College – first acting as pupil and tutor in Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia, then with Sara directing Jonah in the lead role of Prior Walter in  Angels in America at the American Repertory Theater. Currently, she works as the staff writers assistant for the USA Network TV series White Collar.

As writer/producer of “Trixie’s Score”, Sara has assembled an impressive creative team:
