Seema named 1 of 50 people to watch in San Diego in 2005

Seema Sueko

Critics have been raving about this talented young actress- playwright ever since her stage debut last summer in the lead role of the Old Globe’s The Intelligent Design of Jenny Chow. Sueko subsequently showed another side of her talents when she debuted both a play she had written—Remains, about the death of a peace activist in the Gaza Strip—and Mo‘olelo Performing Arts, a company she started for fellow Equity players. Top of the list this year for Sueko, an American Muslim, is to broaden the audience for theater, which she believes “needs to exist in the context of the community".
