About the author Justine Jansz is an emerging playwright and actor based in Melbourne, who also happens to have been a mental health consumer, for the last nineteen years. Justine’s name is derived for the word, ‘justice’- so it somehow makes sense that a passionate social sensibility drives her theatre making. Justine has a Bachelor of Arts Degree (Drama and English), and a Diploma of Small Company and Community Theatre, and currently is working as a tutor for the Adult Migrant English Program. Justine has enjoyed performing wildly varied roles, ranging from a decrepit Frenchman, (Quasarville, 3D FEST, 2005) to the title role of, ‘Antigone’, in her graduating production (Small Co & Community Theatre, NMIT, 2006). Justine is also a founding member of Shock Treatment Theatre. You can catch her performing with, STT, during Mental Health Week, at The Age 2007, Melbourne Fringe Festival. The show titled, ‘Proteazac And Lily-thium’, is based and inspired by Justine’s own experiences with mental health issues. In November, ‘Proteazac And Lily-thium’, will be mounted for a second season in Canada, with the, Paper Bag Players, and Justine hopes that this is the first step in seeing her work performed by diverse communities.
