Tragedy!

Hardship!!

Inspiration!!!

This. Is. NOT. That. Show.

Susan is a perfectly normal queer, fat, functionally blind, Autistic,
chronically and mentally ill, nonbinary person, who just happens to be
collecting diagnoses faster than they collect eel facts.

In this not-so-solo solo show, Susan just wants to get stuff done. Instead, they

end up on an epic quest, battling sock-puppets, ableist audio-describers, a pile of laundry,

and people who don’t provide digital copies of important documents.

Drawing on twenty years of theatre and performance skills, Susan brings their real-life
experiences to the stage. The result is a whimsical romp through the
world of identity and shattered expectations, mixing traditional theatre
with stand up comedy, poetry, improvisation, and more silly voices than
you can shake an eel at.

This production was supported as part of BATS Co-Pro 2021.
