In the Mirror is about Shaun a white Australian who comes from a broken, poor working-class family and Virginia who fled her war torn, repressive and despotic government that controls her country to live in a free, democratic and peaceful society. They are both desperately looking for proper jobs.
It is also about indifferent, detached and narcissists Paula and Paul and how they abuse their power toward Shuan and Virginia in the job interviews they conduct with them. As well as their junior colleague Hendro, a second-generation migrant who dreams and aspires to become like Paula and Paul.
“…This play represents a voice from newcomers to our society who write from its margins with powerful representations of both the other and ourselves.” – The Age
