Queensland Theatre

Black is the New White

Black is the New White will open at Playhouse, Queensland Performing Arts Centre this February!

Queensland Theatre will open what is a refreshingly diverse 2018 season on February 1 with the star-studded razor-shar rom-com Black is the New White, by one of the country’s hottest artist-commentators Nakkiah Lui.

An astute and questioning social comedy on identity, politics and family that blends Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner? with Meet the Fockers, Black is the New White sold out its world premier season at the Sydney Theatre Company in 2017 – a triumph for Queensland Theatre’s Associate Artistic Director Paige Rattray, writer Nakkiah Lui and designer Renee Mulder.

Now it’s coming to Brisbane.

Cast includes: Tony Briggs, Luke Carroll, Vanessa Downing, Geoff Morrell, Melodie Reynolds-Diarra, Shari Sebbens, Tom Stokes, Miranda Tapsall and Anthony Taufa.

For your chance to win a double pass to see Black is the New White at Playhouse, Queensland Performing Arts Centre, Brisbane at 7:30pm on Friday 2 February, simply email with "Black is the New White" in the subject line by Friday 25th January.  Include your full name, address and phone number.
