Actors Wanted for Theatre Production - Wogs In Love (Expired)

Anna and David are in love. Anna is a 24-year-old woman and David 27 years old soon to graduate from the University of Latrobe. For them it seems like a future made in heaven, as they can't see themselves with anybody else. Only there's one problem. Anna's father Niko. Niko is a hard working Greek immigrant who has made good in Australia but refuses to have himself or his children integrate into Australian culture. For him Australia was always the stepping-stone to return back to the old country. And in his own words he says, "the man who wishes to marry my daughter will have to ask me for her hand in Greek" And so begins the journey of how David will win over Niko or will the task of it be too much for the young couple in the end. Will Costa - Anna's younger brother come to the rescue, or her mother, or will her ever sleeping grandmother have words of wisdom for us all. And how do David's working class parents think about mixing with Greeks?!
