Podcast: Writer Nakkiah Lui

Date posted: 12 Apr 2017Author: STC Production: Black is the New White, Black is the New White

Nakkiah Lui's smash-hit play Black is the New White is returning to STC in 2018 after a sold-out season last year. It’s part romantic comedy, part social satire. And it’s a story of two Australian families – the Gibsons and the Smiths – who have been brought together at Christmas time. Amidst the food, the wine and the family arguments, there’s a love story, there’s racial politics and there’s a lot of laughs.

We sat down with Nakkiah to find out what inspired the play and how much of her own life is in it.
