STARS OF TRACK AND FIELD
“A suburban story typical of 90's Melbourne, an era of change for many."
Is of a biographical nature inspired by a conversation the playwright had with her Greek father about suicide and mental illness. A domestic drama that delves into why teenagers self-harm, why parents are in denial and what can happen when there is no understanding of mental illness. It includes self harm, a mercy killing and smatterings of Sophocles quotes.
