Theatre Works and Bravo Arts present

The Mentor

by Joshua White

16 - 26 November 2022

VENUE

Theatre Works

Amanda Redfern, a one-time Hollywood star whose life has spiralled in later years.

When she begins tutoring twenty-something actor Jordan Ridley, the two discover a vastly different set of perceptions across themes of sexism, ageism, respect, consent, mental health; and their methodologies as actors fuelled by vastly different lived experience.

THE MENTOR is driven by a mature female voice, juxtaposed against an idealistic male perspective. It highlights that socially, equality and equity are still values that haven’t been achieved. It demands that we consider how we treat the most vulnerable, and how we examine our own privilege.

DURATION

90 MINUTES (APPROX)

WARNINGS

Some explicit language and contains themes relating to mental health and suicide.
