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.

Content warning: Illegally Blind contains references to ableism, fatphobia and queerphobia. Haze is used during the performance.

Written and performed by Susan Williams.
