"A soft-spoken but tough piece for a world where everyone is suspect..." - Sunday Times
Susan Chester has the perfect life. She is the toast of her quaint English village. She stars in amateur dramatics, she raises dogs, she tends her immaculate garden, and she knows the juiciest gossip.
Susan has the perfect life, until it is rocked by an unspeakable act committed by her troubled son...
Ripped straight from today's headlines, Unsuspecting Susan is a hilariously tender yet haunting solo performance about the boundless reaches of a mother's love.
