Read the feature on Sue Scott’s “Island of Discarded Women” at the Star Tribune.


"...I left that show charged to embrace my own challenges like those islander performers did! To advocate for greater sisterhood and promote change as a collective voice ...To survive those waves that knock us down and to do better then tread in the waters of tolerance. To make effective big splashes in our world,!"
