 Black is the New White

Description

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. Secondly, 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.

It's Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, crossed with Meet the Fockers. 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 an array of brilliant, eccentric, loveable characters in this laugh-out-loud romantic comedy.
