Susie Edmonds began her working life as an actress in her hometown of Fremantle. In one of her earliest plays she was cast as Astrid in the iconic Jack Hibbard play Dimboola.
After some years in Sydney she moved to London to further her studies. Susie attended master classes with the likes of Glenda Jackson and Jonathan Miller and enjoyed her first foray into the study of comic timing with the irrepressible Sheila Hancock.
She returned to Australia in 1983 and the next 12 years her acting career developed in television.
Among her many credits are the ABC TV’s Sweet and Sour, The Man of Letters and Palace of Dreams, also A Country Practice, Cyclone Tracey, Poor Man’s Orange, The Worst Day of My Life, Blue Heelers, Feds and State Coroner, the telemovie Kangaroo Palace and the ABC TV award winning drama Phoenix.
Her theatre credits include Major Barbara & Italian American Reconciliation, WA Theatre Co.; Mean Deeds, As You Like It & Serious Money, Hole In The Wall Theatre Co. She was last seen at the Sydney Theatre Co. in David Williamson’s Dead White Males.
Throughout these years Susie developed her directing skills with many fringe and co-op productions working mostly on new Australian plays. She has devised numerous workshops for actors, writers and directors as well as singers. Susie was co-founder of The Workshop at Belvoir St Theatre.
In 1996 she moved to Castlemaine to settle in the bush and re-think her life’s direction. During this time she devised a one-woman show Having Myself A Time for the Castlemaine Festival. This was followed by her acclaimed performance in Comfort. In 2002 she moved to Braidwood where she established Bushbaby Productions.
As part of Bushbaby Productions ‘Intimates’ program, Susie directed the play readings Truth and Brutality by Jessica Lockhart and Duck Variations by David Mamet and The Spirit of Man by Peter Barnes and will be seen performing in the next play reading Talking Heads by Alan Bennett on August 6. Susie will take on both roles as actress and director in November in Bushbaby Productions ‘Baby Grand’ program - a revised production of Comfort at The Doncaster Hotel in Braidwood.
