Her 2014 Adaptation of Hans Christian Anderson's "The Little Mermaid" was produced at ToyKraft in Williamsberg in a Bunraku version directed by Charlie Kanev w/music by Rima Fand.

Susan's first play, a lingo play, "Rabies", was produced by A.C.T. at Squaw Valley, directed by Ed Hastings. "Stakes," a play about psychological vampires, led to a scholarship to the MFA playwriting program at University of Iowa.  During that year she worked on "Gribiche", based on a Colette story, critiqued by Robert Anderson.

She  developed "White Walled Babes", at The Public Theater, selected for a workshop w/Ed Bullins. It was produced at Trinity Rep (directed by Susan Smyth) and other venues. In the 80's, her green card play, “Something About that Face,” was selected by Samuel French and produced at The Harold Clurman Theater (directed by Brian Mertes) Other plays, developed at Playwrights Continuum, a cooperative workshop, include "Vagus", about two sisters in Las Vegas and "The Media Play." "The Selling of ADD/ADHD" is in progress.

Susan is also the author of three books published in 2016-18 by Pelekinesis Press. They include The Anarchist's Girlfirend, Paradise Gardens, and Tales of the Mer Family Onyx.  She lives and works in NYC.
