“...Cummings’ turn as Jane is a particular stand out. With her motorbike, aviator glasses, leather jacket and fabulously unperturbed brand of Australianness, Jane alone deserves her own spin-off TV series at the very least, driving around the countryside with Lily’s plucky best friend Alice (Shanon Kulupach) solving crimes both supernatural and more earthly in nature…”

Perri has just wrapped on the darkly poetic short film, THREE SISTERS, inspired by the siblings in Shakespeare’s King Lear and will be part of the cast for Gavin Roach’s new play ONE DAMN SEXY APE premiering in the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 2024.
