BLACK IS THE NEW WHITE

This event has passed!

Black Swan presents A Sydney Theatre Company Production

BLACK IS THE NEW WHITE by Nakkiah Lui
 

LOVE, POLITICS AND OTHER THINGS YOU SHOULDN’T TALK ABOUT AT DINNER.

WA PREMIERE
 

Prepare to be enthralled by a razor sharp romantic comedy that blends Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner with Meet the Fockers.

At the centre is Charlotte Gibson, 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! Inviting him and his conservative parents to Christmas is a bold move that has all sorts of unintended consequences. Secrets are revealed, prejudices outed and old rivalries get sorted through.

With a toe-tapping soundtrack and an array of brilliant, eccentric, loveable characters, this is a great night in the theatre and a thoroughly beguiling, very Australian story from award-winning playwright Nakkiah Lui.

Black is the New White sold out its world premiere at Sydney Theatre Company in 2017. Now this laugh-out-loud smash hit comes to Perth bigger, better and blacker than ever!
 

“A wonderfully quick-witted, sharp-as-a-tack Australian rom-com with a lot of heart that keeps the audience laughing – or gasping – all the way.”
