I Am Cate Blanchett
Written and performed by Susan Langston

I Am Cate Blanchett, written and performed by Susan Langston, is the inspirational tale of one woman’s journey down the rabbit hole of crazy. Part spiritual memoir, part spiritual comedy, this multimedia performance will transport you to other worlds and ignite your imagination. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll leave believing that just about anything is possible.

Susan Langston is an emerging writer, storyteller and performance artist. Her first solo piece, I Am Cate Blanchett, was performed in 2017 and 2018. Her work is influenced by her thirty years as a psychotherapist, as well as practices of traditional healing learned from teachers around the world. As a novelist, she is passionate about creating LGBTQ+ characters who mirror the strength and resilience of that community, characters with whom readers feel an affinity, and with stories that reflect relevant struggles and triumphs of the heart. Susan is currently working on her second novel, and is a member of The Loft Literary Center. For more information, please visit Susan’s website at
