Event Description

“Brilliantly written, beautifully performed and Susy Porter is absolutely hilarious, highly emotionally intelligent and deeply inspirational…angelic even.  She uses her humor and her heart to guide her story and what a story it is. Oh, and there’s a vagina puppet…adorable!” NoHoArtsDistrict.com

Taking on such taboo topics as sexual trauma, fundamentalist Christianity, depression, and dysfunctional family dynamics, Susy, a bright and bubbly blonde on the outside, travels through five dramatic decades of self-discovery, as she seeks healing and enlightenment, sharing her story through music, puppets, multimedia, and a cast of colorful characters - all played by Susy herself!

Speaking to the #metoo and #timesup movement, Susy brings her darkest secrets into the light. Will she shed her shame and embrace her inner strength? Will she learn to turn her passiveness into power? It’s time to wake up little Susy. Wake Up Little Susy premiered as an official selection of Solofest 2019 at The Whitefire Theatre. Wake up with Susy and be inspired, enlightened, and entertained along the way!

Written & performed by Susy Porter. Directed & Developed by Jessica Lynn Johnson.

One night only to support the Santa Monica Playhouse Benefit Series. Santa Monica Playhouse is supported in part by the City of Santa Monica and the Santa Monica Arts Commission, the Ahmanson Foundation and Playhouse PALS.
