In memory of Susan Hussey

I've just found out that Susan Hussey, co-artistic director of Gorilla Theatre, has succumbed to cancer after a brave struggle. Susan was a playwright as well as a producer, and her work confronted issues of social and national significance. She was also one of the kindest persons in the theater, here or anywhere. I never heard her say a negative word about anyone - not another theater person, another writer or critic - and she brought dignity to every project she participated in.

Creative Loafing sends its warmest condolences to her husband Aubrey Hampton and to their son Trevor. Susan was a unique personality. Her gentleness, her thoughtfulness and her talent will be sorely missed.
