Eleni is a 23 year old arts student in a stereotypical Greek family. She has made three major decisions in her life which haven’t gone down so well, and definitely made a big impact in her life and her families traditions. The thing is, she’s got one more confession to make - she’s moving out of home with her boyfriend, but has to find how and when the right time is to break the news to everyone.

This will be Ren's most ambitious project to date, as it is her graduating project from AFTRS. We are ideally looking for actors that have been born and raised in a Greek family, or have the ethnic appearance of one. (We can teach the right actors some Greek for the roles.)
This is a graduation project, therefore will be unpaid roles; however expenses will be covered.

Shooting dates are between 3-9th October. Please ensure you can make these dates before applying, as they cannot be changed.

Due to our set dates for casting, we understand not everyone will be able to make the auditions, so we are also accepting self-taped auditions you can send us. Be sure to include your full name on a sheet of paper at the beginning of the tape, include stating your name for the camera, and that you can make the dates of filming. For the self-test, please ensure you send through two read through of the scenes in different variations to show us your range.

We have a friendly, passionate and professional crew, and are looking for the right people to bring this fun project to life.

Thank you! We look forward to hearing from you!

Eleni

Doesn’t like being told what to do, but will do it anyways because she’s a pushover. She’s tired of her parents trying to shape her into their version of a perfect child. She just wants to be like all her friends who can do and be who they are. She struggles to fit in with the old school traditions of the family. Eleni’s got big plans; and her crazy family aren’t going to stop her. A determined individual with a big heart who isn’t afraid of pushing the envelope; well maybe. Just alittle bit.

Females, aged 18 to 30 from New South Wales, Australia

Maria

Eleni’s mother. Loud and proud to be Greek. Eleni’s number 1 fan and biggest critic. You’ll always find Maria cooking up a storm in the kitchen or tending to her beloved veggie patch in her spare time in between work and dealing with Eleni and Dimitri’s antics. Loves a family event and thrives on up keeping the self- awarded “Best Spanakopita, 5 years and counting”. Sometimes forgets the important things when she’s caught up in Greek mode.

Females, aged 40 to 60 from New South Wales, Australia

Niko

Eleni’s father. Married to Maria for 25 years and even that’s too much. Works as a
mechanic by day. Still upset that Eleni’s not dating a Greek, but happy to have him in the family anyway. Doesn’t get involved in Maria’s irrational conversations with Eleni, but always tries to support them even if he doesn’t know what he’s getting himself into. Niko doesn’t pay for anyone to fix things because he’s the best at everything DIY. Always hungry. Loves a beer or two with a souvlaki pita after
work.

Males, aged 40 to 60 from New South Wales, Australia

Michael

Eleni’s boyfriend. Been together for 4 years and counting. Going strong. Michael is an engineer and recently got a contract for a new job down in Melbourne. He’s an Aussie babe with an ethnic flare on the inside and tries his best to always impress Eleni’s family when he gets the chance.

Males, aged 18 to 30 from New South Wales, Australia

Maddie

Eleni’s best friend. They went through high school together, but are close than ever now they study together at uni. Maddie always wants the best for Eleni and isn’t afraid to keep it real and be brutally honest. Loves a brunch or two. Coffee addict and shoe enthusiast.

Females, aged 18 to 30 from New South Wales, Australia

Yiayia

Yiayia loves Eleni to bits and raised her mostly when Maria was at work. Yiayia is essentially Eleni’s second mother and can’t cope when anyone refuses a meal from her. She loves to cook and pass down her traditions within the family; and always seems to forget Eleni doesn't eat meat. She means well and radiates love and generosity, the greek spirit.

Females, aged 50 and over from New South Wales, Australia

Katrina

Maria’s sister, Eleni’s aunt, married to Costa. The funkiest aunt ever. Always having a laugh, loud like Maria. Nothing phases her, except when Costa eats all the leftovers in the fridge. She’s a bold, confident and striking woman inside and out. Her fierce personality allows for no one to mess with her. Can talk for hours.

Females, aged 30 to 60 from New South Wales, Australia

Costa

Eleni’s uncle, married to Katerina. Owns a local cafe. Thinks he’s a comedian and food connoisseur, and laughs at his own jokes even when they're not funny. Always in competition with Niko to be the best BBQ king. Loves to annoy Eleni about everything, another shit stirrer in the family.

Males, aged 30 to 80 from New South Wales, Australia
