Priscilla Queen Of The Disaster
Priscilla Queen Of The Disaster is a heart-wrenching, side-splitting, laugh-and-cry-a-minute, one-woman comedy/drama show.
An incredibly honest and frank true story about the realities of parenting, all told by mother and natural storyteller, Susie.
Priscilla resonates with every parent, mother or anyone who has been through tough life events, all whilst trying to find the funny side in these moments.
Looking at Priscilla for your venue?
Priscilla is a self-contained show suiting small to medium theatres/spaces. With a history of sell-out performances and well attended post-show discussions, programming Priscilla into your diary is a no-brainer!
Audience members can enjoy staying post-show with writer and performer Susie to find out if the story is true, to open up about the effects of motherhood on our mental health and to feel the power of sharing our stories and connecting with others. Plus these post-show discussions indirectly encourage further bar spend at your venue.

Are you a parent?
Have you ever felt scared to admit that you found parenting really hard? Or maybe even realised very quickly that there are no amount of books or blogs you can read, or advice you can receive that will ever prepare you for the responsibility?
There is no training
it’s all very learned on the job
and the responsibility hits like a bus.
Of course, I love my children. Of course, I am grateful. I find parenting fun and we're constantly laughing. Being a mother to these boys is a privilege. But, I am not perfect and I’m often left wondering if I am even enough.
This show connects us all through the best and worst parts of being a parent.
I have long abandoned the idea of only showing the best bits and pretending I am OK when I’m not. I am raising human beings, so it’s probably best I show up as one and not as a robot who only feels the good stuff and highlights the positives. I’m attempting to prepare these kids for life ahead, and we all know it’s nothing like the flawless childhood we have been conditioned to believe we must provide.
This show cuts through the conditioning, the societal expectation and shares a very real story of motherhood, it’s nothing like I expected- THANK GOODNESS!
