Susan Jeremy, an award winning NY solo performer, and character specialist, stars in her new dramatic comedy, Teacher in the House co-written and directed by Mary Fulham. Teacher in the House focuses on Susan's real-life experiences teaching home bound students in NYC. The story unfolds like a television crime series, with true accounts of touching, comical, urban tales of survival.

From teaching a 7th grade health class( can you say penis?) to overcoming a life threatening illness, the protagonist is drawn to and inspired by teaching children who can't attend school: Ryan, a 7 year old with ADD; Rebecca, who’s waiting for a new kidney, and Angela, a paralyzed teen with a huge smile.

Jeremy’s characters are keenly observed and physically portrayed with warmth, candor, and humor.

WHAT THE CRITICS SAY ABOUT SUSAN JEREMY...

"Brilliant!...fantastically talented!" 

                                            - Montreal.com

“Jeremy is a sharp-as-nails comedic actress whose characters live and breathe before you, but she can also serve up keen social commentary.”

-Uptown Magazine – Winnipeg’s Online Source for Arts

“She’s a performer you should see… The writing itself (with co-writer and director Mary Fulham)is sharp. As a performer, Jeremy has a dry comic sensibility and an almost childlike charm in the way she tells a story.”    -Charleston Times
