Suzette Who Set to Sea

The script is clever, with lots of linguistic tricks that will be enjoyable to adults and to older kids. And there is lots of room for all the slapstick comedy dear to children’s hearts – and adults’ hearts, too, when they admit it… I saw the play as a female empowerment study, but there was no sense of a morality play’

Hitting the Stage, Hawaii


In a small seaside village where men build boats and women do not, young Suzette knows she is different – she longs for the sea and believes she is meant for something greater than a life on land. So when a mysterious event occurs, Suzette is forced to do that most difficult thing – prove herself worthy of her destiny.

Loading her loved ones onto a boat she has secretly built, Suzette, she sets to sea.
