SUSIE CORCORAN

Susie has worked at the Harlow Playhouse for 14 years now, with a couple of years out maternity leave to have two little boys. Arguably her best two years!! I know what you’re thinking she would probably have served less time for murder, which just goes to prove what a magical place the Harlow Playhouse is. She started work on a causal basis with shifts on the bar and box office and then secured the role of Box Office Supervisor (or Susievisor- her words) in 2007. She has seen lots of change in the building and some of the most amazing theatre, something she is incredibly grateful for. After the birth of the two children Susie returned to work, she was inspired to write her own show about her story of motherhood, which she has performed at the Harlow Playhouse twice and once in Hertford, she is hoping to tour this very soon… so watch this space. She has met her best friends here, laughs daily even on the worst days and counts herself lucky to be surrounded everyday by creatives who strive to make the world a more colourful and wonderful place to be through theatre. 

Top pick: Susie’s top pick for the season is ‘Birth’, a recommendation from Kirstie Brough who managed to catch it in Edinburgh. A show which explores motherhood and loss is sure to impact the now emotionally smug (sometimes unstable) Susie.
