Sue Rose is a multi-disciplinary artist who has been active in the theatre community in Sackville, New Brunswick since 2007 primarily as a costume designer and actor. She is a founding member and current boardmember of Performers’ Theatre Company. She has had the privilege of performing in many plays produced by the Performers' Theatre Company: as Her Ladyship in The Dresser; Abby in Arsenic And Old Lace; Ruth in Blithe Spirit; Mrs. Graves in Enchanted April and Cissy in Quartet among others.
Her first play, Safe Harbour, was staged by Performers’ Theatre Company in 2017. Since then she likes to say that she has been pursuing the craft of playwriting as if her hair was on fire and she’s enjoying every minute of it. Her play Zeus In A Zoot Suit was staged by The Saint John Theatre Company (Script Happens, 2018) and The Plucking Dark Ages was selected to receive a staged reading during the NotaBle Acts Summer Festival, 2019. She directed her play, One-Eyed Fish And The Drowned World, as part of Live Bait’s inaugural New Works Festival in Sackville, July 2019.
All of these things are true: she is originally from the Chicago area, she is an alumni of the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design and before moving to Sackville in 1997, she and her husband John lived in the western high arctic for twenty years. More things are true but that is all that will be revealed for now.
