About Stamped: A Story About Daniel,
Who Happens to have Autism

"This show is terrific - funny, poignant, original."

Sarah Magni is a Canadian actor who has performed both in Toronto and in New York City. This is the first solo piece Sarah has written and performed in and it has a message she stands behind. The first part of Stamped has previously been performed by Sarah in a workshop setting at The New School University, in New York City.

On top of being a professional actor Sarah teaches theatre to children and has a strong belief in theatre as a source of education and healing. Sarah founded Thatz Showbiz Theatre Project a program for kids and teens who have a passion for theatre.


Sarah is an activist for people with Autism and wrote this piece in order to help give Autism a voice. In order to write this semi-biographical piece based on her own brother, who has Autism, Sarah interviewed her brother. In this show she actually includes these interview sessions in which she plays both Daniel being interviewed and his sister interviewing him. By taking a personal approach she makes Autism relatable.

This piece is done as a solo show because we are all targets of being Stamped and labelled, whether by ourselves or those around us. Even though Sarah is only one human being she can connect to many others simply because human existence is a common experience. Stamped is a ground breaking piece that will leave people thinking, not just about Autism, but about themselves and their relation to the things that define them as humans. Above all else this is a coming of age tale. It is not simply about Autism, it is about Daniel, who happens to have Autism.
