Susan Harrison (2 stars)

This article is from 2009.

There’s clear talent abounding in this pint-sized comic actor, but the writing and chosen subjects of Five Characters in Search of Susan let her down badly. She adds very little to well-worn tropes of the posh ‘street’ kid and reality TV wannabe, while the portrayal of the embittered, overly-harsh comedy critic is, it pains to admit it, pretty much on the money.

Five Characters in Search of Susan

  • 2 stars

Susan Harrison, 'in possession of razor sharp timing' (, transforms into five completely different individuals. Funny, twisted and surprisingly poignant this is character comedy at its very best. 'Utterly convincing' (Sunday Telegraph).

By the looks of this review, maybe the 'reviewer' character was a little too close to person reviewing it!

I saw this show last week and loved all the characters, the rapper girl with the hat was my favourite.

I agree with Andrew's comments - a great show!
