Mocha Is Not Coffee! is a newly written Australian play which explores the complex issue of law student mental health and wellbeing.
Addicted to their liquid allies: DEB loves a skinny latte, CAROLYN English breakfast tea, LEDAH soy-milk chai latte with a shot of decaffeinated coffee, and ATHENA adores mocha. On the cusp of multiple mental breakdowns, these four law students fear never receiving an entry-level legal job. It’s all fun and terror until one goes missing…
Presented as part of Law Week 2019, Mocha Is Not Coffee! is being staged by the team at Norbury Productions who are a Melbourne Independent Theatre group presenting newly written plays that highlight legal issues in the community. It is hoped that this production will educate audiences and open up conversations about the impact of mental health on legal professionals and law students.
