Lexi Love-Dack is an actress and writer hailing from the Mornington Peninsula. She discovered her love of storytelling at an early age and subjected her family to torturously long, self-devised performances that have (hopefully) become more refined over the years. She takes inspiration from prolific film and theatre makers who tell stirring human stories, with a focus on ecological sustainability.
