Podcast: In conversation with Nakkiah Lui

Nakkiah Lui discusses what inspired her hit play, Black is the New White, and how much of her own life is in it.

Award-winning writer and TV personality Nakkiah Lui talks to STC Content Manager Carl Nilson-Polias about her motivations for writing this hugely-successful play. Lui shows us why she is one of this country’s most incisive comedy writers, with a home-grown satire that is both subversive and thoroughly entertaining.

This interview was originally published by Sydney Theatre Company in 2017.

Black is the New White is playing at Southbank Theatre from 2 October until 9 November.
