In a twist of racial stereotypes, a well to do Indigenous family comes to terms with the struggling, white, boyfriend and his parents who visit for the Christmas holidays.
'Black is the New White' is a Guess Who's Coming to Dinner for the 21st Century. Authored by Nakkiah Lui, the play contains plenty of sassy, intelligent dialogue and much humour. Two slapstick scenes may be slightly over the top and the eventual resolution may be a little too neat but for the most part this is a very funny and intriguing play.
