Outside comedy Sooz performs in musical theatre, most recently as David Cameron, Angela Merkel and Theresa May in Jonny Woo's All-Star Brexit Cabaret, co-written with Richard Thomas (Jerry Springer the Opera) which practically sold out its entire run at the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe, received excellent reviews from The Guardian, The Scotsman and more and went on to sell out its run at the Soho Theatre.

 

In June 2019 a tweet thread about a singing contract in Ayia Napa years ago somehow went viral and was retweeted by celebrities including Caitlin Moran, Jay Rayner, James Corden and Ed Miliband. Not sure what to make of that? See for yourself HERE
