Residue by Susan Sher, directed by Karen Gath-McClain

About the Play:

Residue explores a meaningful interaction between TSA agents and a passenger who is subjected to a pat-down. The passenger, while afraid of missing her flight, feels compelled to engage in a genuine dialogue with the TSA officers. One TSA agent is for the most part, unable to move beyond her role as law enforcement officer while the other, apparently less fearful of losing her job, is willing to engage in a sincere exchange of ideas.

About the Playwright:

Susan Sher writes short plays and fiction as well as essays which often focus on social justice issues.  Whenever possible, she tries to infuse humor into her work.  Susan is an attorney representing low income workers with employment discrimination claims.  She currently lives in Ukiah, California with her 14-year old daughter.

About the Director:

Her directing experience includes, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown, Schoolhouse Rock, Taming of the Shrew,  Seussical, Into the Woods, The Crucible and Laramie Project.
