Christine Lambrianidis is a PhD candidate in Theatre and Performance at Monash University. She is researching the correlation between Greek tragedy and Harold Pinter’s plays in order to create and implement a new theatrical style. As part of this project, Christine is currently working on a play entitled ‘The Debt’ that questions whether an individual can exist in opposition to a dominate ideology. This play, formerly known as ‘The Greeks’, has had two readings at La Mama (2014) and Five.Point.One Theatre (Adelaide, 2015). Her first play ‘The Woman in His Mind’ was performed at La Mama Courthouse in 2011. After being the playwright in residence at Melbourne Writers Theatre (2011), she then became their play reading coordinator (2012).
Christine is also the Head of the English Department at Point Cook Senior College where she enjoys discussing plays, poetry and many more with her senior English and Literature students.
She was the writer and editor of the Theatre and Performance section in Lots Wife (2013) and is an occasional blogger (Playwright Confessions). Recently, she was a guest on Libby Gorr’s 774 ABC program, discussing how young people can write about human trafficking and slavery.
