Black is the New White

A mix of Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner and Meet the Fockers, Nakkiah Lui’s smash hit comedy is set to delight Melbourne audiences. Charlotte Gibson is a lawyer with a brilliant career ahead of her. As her father Ray says, she could be the next female Indigenous Waleed Aly. But she has other ideas. First of all, it’s Christmas. Second of all, she’s in love. The thing is, her fiancé, Francis Smith, is not what her family expected – he’s unemployed, he’s an experimental composer… and he’s white! When the families come together at the Gibson’s ritzy holiday home, the stage is set for a riotously funny struggle for dominance where insults fly, secrets come flooding out and sacred cows of all descriptions are mercilessly skewered. Following two sell-out seasons at Sydney Theatre Company, Black is the New White is the hit new Australian comedy set to delight Melbourne audiences. Award-winning writer and TV personality Nakkiah Lui shows why she is one of this country’s most incisive comedy writers, with a home-grown satire that is both subversive and thoroughly entertaining. STC Associate Director Paige Rattray directs this laugh-out-loud romantic comedy. Performing daily except Sundays.
