Suzanne Crone has spent most of her five decades trying things. She spent scads of time doing improv at Theatresports and in Second City classes and has taken a few runs at stand up. She has a B.A, in English from McMaster, an Honours Certificate in P.R. from Humber, and a pretty solid warranty on her new coffee grinder. She has just sent her third novel off to be considered for publishing. She has a small role in an independent film, “52 Words for Love,” soon to be released. She has two boys that she is crazy about. And a bike. She loves her bike. She is thrilled to be joining the members of TBC and the production of “Family Debts.” Suzanne is not very tall but she can jump pretty high.
