The sold-out, smash hit romantic comedy seen by thousands of people around the country comes to Adelaide, bigger, better and blacker than ever!

Charlotte Gibson is a lawyer with a brilliant career ahead of her. As her father says, she could be the next female Indigenous Waleed Aly. But she has other ideas. First of all, it’s Christmas. Second of all, she’s in love.

However, Charlotte’s fiancé, Francis Smith, is not what her family expected: he’s unemployed, he’s an experimental composer… and he’s white. Inviting Francis and his conservative parents to the Gibson family Christmas is a bold move with all sorts of unintended consequences. Secrets are revealed, prejudices outed and old rivalries reignited.

With a toe-tapping soundtrack and an array of eccentric and loveable characters, this thoroughly beguiling, very Australian story from award-winning playwright Nakkiah Lui is an unmissable comedy of desire and dysfunction. Black is the New White will have you rolling in the aisles with laughter.
