ROLES ON OFFER

PERFORMER  (POSITION FILLED)

Male Identifying, Indigenous, Playing range 19-20 yo

Tharawal/Dharawal man. Lovia’s friend since school, and current co-worker. Politically aware and engaged with contemporary issues that face marginalised Australians, he is resentful of the lack of inaction on these issues but cannot muster the strength to become the activist he wishes. He is the son of a tradie, who pushes to find his purpose independently. Mitch thinks Lovia is beyond her job at Franklin’s and sees it as important for marginalised people to stick together and maintain a sense of identity.
The character was co-written and consulted on by Callan Purcell.
