Black is the New White

Shari Sebbens performs a scene from Black is the New White

For the first instalment of STC Virtual first Shari Sebbens, our Richard Wherrett Fellow, performs a scene from audience favourite Black is the New White by Nakkiah Lui, directed by Associate Director Paige Rattray. 

This excerpt is a comedic meltdown by the character Rose, but it’s also a brilliant example of the incisive dissection of politics and identity that characterises Nakkiah’s writing.
