LOVE, POLITICS AND OTHER THINGS YOU SHOULDN’T TALK ABOUT AT DINNER.

By Nakkiah Lui

Sydney Theatre Company brings to Canberra its smash hit, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy written by Nakkiah Lui.

At the centre of this production is Charlotte Gibson, a lawyer with a brilliant career ahead of her. As her father Ray 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.

The thing is, her fiancé, Francis Smith, is not what her family expected – he’s unemployed, he’s an experimental composer… and he’s white! Inviting him and his conservative parents to Christmas is a bold move that has all sorts of unintended consequences.

Secrets are revealed, prejudices outed and old rivalries get sorted through. With a toe-tapping soundtrack and an array of brilliant, eccentric, loveable characters, this is a great night in the theatre and a thoroughly beguiling, very Australian story from award-winning playwright Nakkiah Lui.

“★★★★½ A quick-witted, sharp­as­a­tack Australian Rom Com.” Limelight
