Press for Folken Britain

“When Susan Harrison takes on a new persona she does so with her whole body – she seems to shrink and stretch before our eyes – transforming and transporting herself across social class, gender and species. It’s seamless and vaguely unnerving.” (The Skinny)

“Harrison invokes her whole body and mannerisms to suit each character, which pays dividends in her portrayal of Tony Blair and allows grade-A transitions between scenes…Harrison is a performer with depth and range; able to read the audience with the precision of an old hand….Harrison is a fantastic character comedian and at her best can deliver solid gold” (Chortle)

Press For Creatures

“one of the most entertaining hours of the festival. I was truly blown away…really, really impressive indeed” ****1/2 (British Comedy Guide)

“ better than most TV shows of a similar format, but it would be a crime to put a screen between the audience and her ferocious presence” **** (The List)

“razor sharp wit and apt social observation brilliantly displaced onto a surreal setting. Smart and original absurdist comedy” **** (ThreeWeeks)

“Dark comedy at its best” ***** (ThreeWeeks)

“remarkable ease, brilliant comic timing and a sense of authenticity” (The Stage)

“her name is one to look out for” **** (One4Review)

Press For Soft

“Harrison’s writing poetically captures a feeling of sad nostalgia and tongue-in-cheek humour throughout the piece….Soft is a humorous reminder that our elderly were young once too, and had their own lives just as detailed and complicated as ours.” (Carly Halse for Female Arts)
