Black is the New White

Where Sydney - - Where Now Live On Stage -

Syd­ney The­atre Com­pany present Nakkiah Lui’s smash hit ro­man­tic com­edy “Black is the New White”. Char­lotte Gib­son is a lawyer with a bril­liant ca­reer ahead of her. As her fa­ther Ray says, she could be the next fe­male Abo­rig­i­nal ver­sion of Waleed Aly. But she has other ideas. Her fi­ancé, Fran­cis Smith, is not what her fam­ily ex­pected—he’s un­em­ployed, he’s an ex­per­i­men­tal clas­si­cal com­poser … and he’s white! Invit­ing him and his con­ser­va­tive par­ents to Christ­mas is a bold move that has all sorts of un­in­tended con­se­quences. This is a great night in the the­atre and a very Aus­tralian story.

Un­til 10 March, Roslyn Packer The­atre, 22 Hick­son Road, Walsh Bay. 9250 1777. syd­neythe­
