Dialogic Interplay: A Strategy for Representing Difference and Cultural Diversity on Stage is a practice-led research project that consists of a play Jump for Jordan, which had its premier production at the Griffin Theatre Company in 2014, and an exegesis. The purpose of the study was to discover dramaturgical strategies which could effectively place culturally diverse characters, and a lesbian protagonist, on an Australian main stage, and thereby address a gap in the contemporary Australian theatre repertoire.
