Directed by Andrew Olsen
susaneLand creators Susane Lee and Andrew Olsen expertly craft five surreal, twisted, dark and hilarious vignettes using elevator flatulence, obsession over the number of shopping basket items express checkout aisles, , emergency room trips for bleach in the eye, and childhood violin lessons with the most unsympathetic teacher. The side-splitting stories are inspired by events in Lee’s life.
At its core, susaneLand laughs off everyday niceties, using human nature as the ultimate punchline. Each slice of this episodic cake has its own delicious flavor, mixing mundane, everyday moments with over-the-top elements and talented and diverse ensembles to produce a satisfying, surprising result. The icing on the cake is Lee’s stellar performance and timing making it feel perfectly acceptable to laugh at this series of unfortunate-yet-silly events.
