Suzanna Geraghty’s one-woman comedy drama Auditions Zoe’s Auditions beat off stiff competition at one of the biggest solo theatre festivals in the world, the United Solo, New York, to become Audience Favourite in 2011.

Since then Suzanna, who is from Dublin but has lived in the Big Apple for the past 17 years, has been touring with her comedy about a woman who works backstage at a theatre dreaming of acting success, but lacking the confidence to make it big, doing the laundry at the theatre and hiding in the shadows. To add to her misfortunes, Zoe has a very elderly acting agent who sends the benighted Zoe to highly inappropriate auditions, like for Riverdance or Spider Man or for something that involves being shot out of a cannon.

The New York Times said of Auditions Zoe’s Auditions that it was “charming” and called Geraghty “a gifted physical comedienne”.
