Susan Gordon



Susan continues to bring her own distinctive Doric brilliance to our productions as well as being a calm and relaxed presence in the Gordon household. Another hard working edumacator, Susan also finds time to produce baking and desserts of the highest quality, to which the ever-expanding waistlines of the Pigs are testament.

An alumnus of Aberdeen’s prestigious Holburn West Junior Music Society, she was one half of a highly successful sister act during the early 1980’s. Their closing number – an impassioned performance of “Let’s all Play at Indians” – would elicit wild applause from a select audience of mum, dad, and upstairs neighbour. Typecast in the role of ‘Narrator’ at Ashley Road Primary, Susan then diversified and took the guise of ‘La Corbie’ in Aberdeen Grammar School’s production of Mary Queen of Scots Got Her Head Chopped Off, and has continued the ‘old crone’ theme with subsequent roles. With Flying Pig, however, Susan has broadened her palette and can be sometimes seen playing characters as young as 50.

TV work includes presenting a cheque in a Grampian TV Telethon and an appearance aged 4 in the Union Grove Oddbins during a report by Selina Scott, who subsequently went on to work with both ‘fun-time’ Frank Bough and Prince Charles. Her radio work includes a performance as ‘starstruck fan at the head of the queue for Jason Donovan tickets’ in 1990.
