Suzanne Bachner • Playwright & Director


Suzanne is an award-winning playwright and director and native New Yorker. Her trio of long-running NYC hit plays includes CIRCLE, which ran for five months Off Broadway, won Most Daring Show of the London Fringe in its Sold-Out International Tour and was called “ingenious” by The New York Times. She created and directed two cult hits: Icons & Outcasts, which transferred to The Duplex for a six-month run, and BITE, the choose-your-own-adventure comedy with 968 unique scripted permutations which had a five-month NYC run and international tour. Other playwriting and directing credits include the 14-actor San Diego commission and marriage equality epic, Brilliant Mistake, and her celebrated kaleidoscopic memoir play, We Call Her Benny. Suzanne’s totally true solo show, The Good Adoptee, which won the Best Autobiographical Script Award at the United Solo Theatre Festival, has toured to the London International Fringe Festival and across the U.S., has been part of law and life-changing adoptee rights advocacy and connected with global audiences in its virtual presentations. Suzanne studied playwriting with Romulus Linney and Adrienne Kennedy and holds an MFA from the Actors Studio Drama School at the New School University. She is a four-time OOBR Award winner and a member of the Dramatists Guild. Broadway World called her work “the future of theatre.”
