Mumbai-born Sudeepta ( Sue) Vyas is an Auckland-based actor and co-founder of Prayas Theatre Group, New Zealand’s largest South Asian theatre/cultural organisation. She has acted in numerous theatre productions and short films over the last 17 years.

She has performed various roles in much-acclaimed shows such as A Fine Balance, Love N Stuff, Swabhoomi: Borrowed Earth, Rudali, Charandas Chor – The Honest Thief, First World Problems, Yatra, and more. From the quirky to the sedate, her roles have covered characters as an estranged wife, the queen’s maid, an over-the-hill prostitute, a ditsy marijuana smoker, a lost trekker, an ambitious bikini wax salon owner, and more.

Her latest film, “A Suit We Wear” by American director Meera Joshi of Darling Street Pictures, is an official selection at Chicago South Asian Film Festival.

When she is not acting, Sudeepta is a freelance writer, a consultant for not-for-profits, an avid trekker, and volunteers as a guide dog boarder. She lives in Auckland with her husband and has two young daughters who have moved to London.
