“So here I am – wIth the Same dream and the Same ruckSack… but wIth 30 years of extra baggage!”
Meet Susan: she’s scatty, chatty and in a league of her own.
Life may have left her friends looking forward to their next facelift, the arrival of grandchildren, or a shred of gossip about the neighbours, but Susan dreams of escape. To hell with middle age. She’s off to relive the fun of her younger years.
Eccentric, clumsy and unwaveringly optimistic, for Susan the only way forward is back. She wants to feel alive again, to be on the edge – and preferably, seated at the bar. She packs her bag and heads to Sydney to retrace the steps of a holiday she took with friends years ago. Determined to have as much fun as in her 20s, Susan’s adventures lead her back to old ground… but is it like old times?
This heartwarming and achingly funny one-woman show will have you reaching for your boarding pass and wondering, where shall I go next?
