Born in Argentina, Susana Cook is a New York based playwright, director and performer who has been creating original work for over 30 years. She has presented over 17 original plays in New York and around the world. Susana writes and directs all her shows and performs in them with her company. Her work is bold and funny, cleverly tackling racism, homophobia, sexism and classism.  Her casts are comprised mostly of minority, queer and trans people.

Susana’s shows combine her long experience in political theater, experimental performance, cabaret, solo shows, ensemble work, music and dance creating a funny, smart, cathartic, imagistic, poetic experience. Her work is archived at the Digital Video Library of The Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics of New York University.

Susana's upcoming show "RUN! It’s getting ugly" is on April 7 & 8 at 7 pm at JACK, 505 1/2 Waverly Avenue Brooklyn, NY 11238  

In this hysterical satire about racism and discrimination, Susana Cook shares what she calls a "family melodrama for these fascist times." In the brazen, wacky play, a white nationalist family falls into a muddy and desperate identity crisis when they are attacked by "La Contaminación Cultural." Their sense of language, grammar and origin gets altered, making them question who they really are.
