Susan Ito – Solo Performance

    SusanIto_IceCreamFINAL2
    Lost Lit is thrilled to welcome Susan Ito to the stage! As a young adult, Susan follows an obstacle-filled trail to her birth mother. When she finally meets her, she discovers that some things simply just are genetic. Susan’s one-woman show, with no set and no props, brings to life her dramatic search for the details of her origins and her emotional roller coaster ride in defining love, family and belonging.

    Afterwards, we’ll have time for an intimate Q&A with Susan, as well as a celebratory reception.
    Hope you’ll join us!
