Suzie’s lived research-practice offers practical support for actors who care about having joyous and sustainable careers and I commend her for such needed service to the acting community.

I completed Dr. Suzie J. Jarmain’s The Laboratory and it was probably the most memorable and practically useful experiences I’ve ever had as an actor, having done lots of training with different organisations and teachers in both London and Melbourne.

The Laboratory is a super exciting learning environment for actors to play and experiment with Suzie’s invaluable knowledge and energy that is so freely shared.
