Black Is The New White

We all know the story of Romeo and Juliet, but what if Romeo what white, Juliet was black, and the war took place on Twitter? ‘Black is the New White’ is an upcoming rom-com at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre in Brisbane and it’s not be missed, having sold out its world premiere season at Sydney Theatre Company earlier in the year and received rave reviews from the likes of The Sydney Morning Herald, The Daily Telegraph, The Australian, and The Guardian.

In ‘Black is the New White’, successful lawyer Charlotte Gibson and penniless avant-garde cellist Francis Smith get engaged after a whirlwind romance, but just like Romeo and Juliet, it’s not that simple. Charlotte’s the favourite daughter of Australia’s most charismatic Aboriginal politician, whilst Francis is the son of his most bitter rival for decades. The two families come together in the Gibson’s fancy holiday mansion and what happens next is nothing but witty comedy and a riotously funny struggle as everyone clashes and secrets start to pour out.

‘Black is the New White’ is a hilarious yet heartwarming show that blends some of the most successful rom-com films with the classic story of Romeo and Juliet. Be the first to see it when comes to the Queensland Performing Arts Centre in Brisbane, available to watch from the 1st of February until the 17th of February.
