... a funny, emotive and biographical one-woman play... Laughter, lots of laughter."

LUCÍA CAMARGO ROJAS

Special to The Post and Courier

"...outrageous humor ...a tour of both her whacky ever-changing world and her heart, which is strong enough to keep pushing through." - Karen D'Onfrio Electric Link

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

LUZ

by Catherine Filloux

directed by Jose Zayas

music by Sergio R. Reyes

From the garbage dump in Guatemala City, to the tent cities in Haiti, to the toxic oil ponds where birds expire, Luz, Helene and Zia –survivors of targeted violence—with the help of human rights lawyer Alexandra search for hope in the unlikeliest, in-between places. LUZ is a play that is at once volatile and tender, entertaining and surreal.
