About the event

An Aboriginal, an Asian and an Islander walk into a bar. It’s not the beginning of a racist joke, it’s the catalyst for a stinging satire from award-winning playwright Nakkiah Lui (Black is the New White).

Vic, Zaza and Chris are political insiders hustling their way to the top. They want influence, they want change, they want to take over Parliament House. They leave that bar drunk on power, with a plan to take over the world. First step: find a likeable white guy to use as a political puppet. What could possibly go wrong?

Don't miss this hilarious new production exploring sex, lies and the balance of power – on stage this summer at Sydney Opera House.

"★★★★ Generously funny... a bustling, astute and questioning social comedy on identity politics."

THE SYDNEY MORNING HERALD

"★★★★ With pitch-perfect performances all round, it’s a thought-provoking, joyously entertaining comedy."

THE DAILY TELEGRAPH

"★★★★½ A wonderfully quick-witted, sharp-as-a-tack Australian Rom Com with a lot of heart that keeps the audience laughing – or gasping – all the way."

LIMELIGHT

"Deliciously funny."

THE AUSTRALIAN

"Big social issues with a whole heap of goofball."
