Empathy Training

A group of high-profile and completely self-centred people must undertake empathy training in order to resurrect their careers and restore their public images. The participants include: Tucker, an AFL player charged with defamation and committing a lewd act in public; Maddysyn, an influencer accused of negligence and defrauding her followers; Cynthia, a businesswoman involved in the exploitation of workers; and Winston, a politician accused of nepotism and spending public money for his own purposes. Guiding them through the course is Sarah, a psychologist, who must also overcome her own issues. As expected, the training does not go to plan...

Written and directed by Brendan Black.

Performed by Davita van der Velde, Peter Hatherley, Julie Arnold, Emma Snow, and Alex Thomson.
