Black is the New White
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. sydneytheatre.com.au
