Suzy Crothers

Thanks for visiting!

I am a Belfast born, Margate based solo artist, writer, director and collaborator working within theatre and live performance.

I make massive hearted, multidisciplinary work that illuminates unheard stories. 

I make work for ‘Auntie Mary’, who sits in the cheapest seat and comes to see a cracking story unfold.

Fusing movement, music and storytelling, my work explores the clash between lived experiences, illusion and delusion.

If you, like me, are permanently curious, please do get in touch and whilst you're here, check out my current project,

Less Alone, More Alive

Bio

I’m an actor/ director/ writer turned multidisciplinary performance maker. 

I’ve trained with Bryony Kimmings and Haley McGee.  I was shortlisted for The Abbey Begins workshop at The National Theatre of Ireland and Pintsized Octoberfest Playwriting competition at The Bunker Theatre, both in 2019.

Actor training at E15 (BA Acting), EACT (European Actors Continuous Training in conjunction with RADA, IIPA and The Actor’s Centre) and Director training under Di Trevis (The Workshop).

I’m an invited member of the Lincoln Centre Director Lab NYC (2014), Young Vic Springboard Group for Directors (2013) and the Tamasha Developing Writer Group (2012).  

I’ve directed other people’s work on the London fringe and have worked with writers like Brad Birch, Charlie Josephine, Izzy Tennyson, Rabiah Hussain and Harriet Madeley.  With acting, I worked in the UK and Ireland for places like The Lyric Belfast, The Lowry and BBC Radio.  My writing has been performed at venues such as The Pleasance, The Arcola, The Spoken Space and The Mac, Belfast.

Latest news

My latest project is solo show ‘Less Alone, More Alive’.

In 2021, I’m a grateful recipient of a Tech Fund bursary from Graeae Theatre Company and The Paul Hamlyn Foundation, which will enable me to continue developing my practice at this time.

From April 21, I will be an Associate at Open School East- a part time, pluridisciplinary art school in Margate.  Through continuing to expand the nature of my performance practice and experimenting with new forms, I am seeking to create work that is accessible on multiple platforms in this Covid age.
