Suzy’s own interview theatre piece When You Ask Her uses a combination of interviews and personal narrative to explore what shapes female sexuality in America. When You Ask Her is a one-person show that seeks to create open discussion on topics ranging from sex education and “first times” to sexual assault and rape culture. A workshop of the play was produced by All For One theatre company in January 2020. Some favorite acting credits include Dear Evan Hansen on Broadway, Viola in Twelfth Night at Stratford Shakespeare Festival, Alice on FX’s The Americans, and Agent Schiffman on CBS’s Person of Interest.
