Susannah also works as a freelance producer at BBC Radio 4.
Susannah has worked on arts programmes for BBC Radio 3 (The Verb) and the BBC World Service (The Strand/Arts Daily). But mostly, since 2004, she has worked as a freelance producer at Woman’s Hour. An experience and perspective that has shaped and influenced all her work.
She produced a documentary for BBC Radio 4 called Theatre of the Abused. Presented by April de Angelis, the documentary looks at feminist theatre and ask the question: does the performing of graphic sexual violence help in the fight for equality?
The documentary broadcast on Thurs 4th December 2014, at 11.30am. And then again on BBC World Service.
We met and interviewed: Marion Bailey on Blurred Lines (National Theatre, London), Anna Jordan on Freak (Theatre 503, London), Yael Farber and Priyanka Bose on Nirbhaya (Southbank Centre, London), Annie Ryan on A Girl is A Half Formed Thing (Sam Beckett Centre, Dublin Theatre Festival), Dr Lucy Nevitt author of Theatre and Violence, cultural sociologst Dr Tiffany Jenkins and theatre critic Lyn Gardner. It has been an absolute privilege to speak with these women about sexual violence and feminist theatre.
