S.A. Foster (Hess Oster) earned an M.F.A. in Children's Literature from Hollins University and an M.A. in Shakespeare and Education from the Shakespeare Institute in Stratford-upon-Avon. She spent four years pretending to be other people in schools across the US, Canada, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau, Mainland China, and the Philippines. Then she moved to Seoul, South Korea where she pretended to be more people for four more years and founded a group of pretenders called Cut Glass Theatre. She also taught students about how much better and more poetic it was when people pretended to be other people during the Renaissance. She is the current Conservatory Coordinator with the California Shakespeare Theater. She has blue and green bottles glued to her wall. She has two darling children who occasionally drive her up the wall. She tries to be herself, but that's not easy.
That's why she brings stories to the stage.
