Susan Jeremy to Brin P.S. 69 – A TEACHER GROWS IN BROOKLYN to The Theater Project, 10/16-19


Teacher and comic Susan Jeremy will perform her acclaimed one-woman show, P.S. 69 - A TEACHER GROWS IN BROOKLYN at The Theater Project in Maplewood, NJ, this fall. She portrays her classroom experiences with an eye on the ironies and absurdities teachers encounter daily. The show will run at the Burgdorff Center for the Performing Arts, 10 Durand Road, Maplewood, NJ, for only four performances, October 16, 17, 18 and 19. Reserving early is recommended.

Ms. Jeremy has toured the show in the United States, Canada and Europe. "New Jersey seemed like the next logical step," she mused. Developed with director Mary Fulham, P.S. 69 recounts one teacher's journey through the bureaucratic mazes and chaotic corridors of the New York City school system. In the show, Jeremy recreates the personalities of the administrators, teachers, parents and students she met on her way to becoming an educator - her parallel career to performance art.

Susan Jeremy will dialogue with the audience after each performance.

Winner of BEST COMEDY at the Montreal Fringe Festival, The Boston Globe acclaimed the show and Ms. Jeremy's "bravura command of gesture and speech ... skewers the lunacy of contemporary education." TalkinBroadway.com said "Amazing ... with a waggle of her finger, a crane of her neck, or a slight turn of her head, Ms. Jeremy instantly changes her age, sex, and even her skin color ... full of humor and insight." Montreal Hour commented on her characterizations: "Outlandish but true ... she so clearly loves these people that she never betrays them...It touches the soul even as it bops the funny-bone."

P.S. 69 is part of a light-hearted salute to education, a series of three plays in three weeks: THE THEATER PROJECT GOES BACK TO SCHOOL. The first show, RUSH LIMBAUGH IN NIGHT SCHOOL (October 2 - 5) is a fantasia about a famous talk show host's foray into liberal land, and MRS. MANNERLY (October 9- 12) is playwright Jeffrey Hatcher's semi - autobiographical retelling of the etiquette classes he endured as a boy in Ohio.

Tickets are available at the web site, TheTheaterProject.org. At the door admission is $30 adults, $15 students. Special discounts are available when buying tickets prior to October 1: purchase tickets to see all three plays for $45, two plays for $40, or one play for $25. Tickets: TheTheaterProject.org. Information: 908 809-8865.
