Homerun is a monologue about God and home runs that Susana Cook performs playing a guitar. The solo piece was inspired by a commentary by a famous baseball player that Susana saw on TV, in which the player presented home runs as “a God-giving thing.” In the monologue, Susana humorously locates this “gift” in inadequate contexts like Argentina, where baseball is not a popular sport like in the United States; and she also imagines a female protagonist who, despite her talent, would not make it to the major league because of her gender. “Homerun” was part of “Rivers of Honey, Women’s of Color Cabaret,” held at WOW Theater Café in New York City.
Written and Directed by Susana Cook @ La mama. 2017
The Funeral of the Cow, a post-modern drama of the post-modern, creates a melancholic satire about trans-species, a hypnotizing world of dramatic, melodramatic and post-dramatic narratives that delve into the essence of humans, non-humans and the rest of us.
A misunderstood miracle shakes a conservative congregation’s values to its core: their beloved pastor becomes the center of a spectacular scandal. The resulting firestorm will forever shatter their notions of sex, gender and intercourse between animate beings. A transcendent trans-comedy of errors featuring mad ministers, Saturdayanic and divine interventions, confused angels and maybe even the antichrist.
