WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

PS 69, starring Susan Jeremy, is a hilarious tale of a substitute teacher in a fictional Brooklyn school. Susan Jeremy plays all 24 characters in her critically acclaimed tour de force that is based on Jeremy's experiences as a teacher in a NYC public elementary school. It tells the story of Molly DeKowski, an uncertain young woman who wants to be a teacher. As Jeremy weaves 24 characters to portray the diversity and the difficulties inherent in an overcrowded, understaffed and under-funded inner city school, she brings to life an entire school system from the jive-talking, fourth-grade hip-hoppers, to the burned-out, embittered teachers to the over-protective mothers with allergy-ridden children. PS 69 won Best Comedy at the 2000 Montreal Fringe Festival. Which led to a run at the prestigious Just for Laughs Comedy Festival. The show has toured and impressed audiences throughout USA and Canada. In 2003, competing with 1500 shows, PS 69 played to packed houses and rave reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe festival.
