FAST-PACED ADVENTURE THAT BRINGS THE HOUSE DOWN
LUI'S FEROCIOUS NEW COMEDY WILL HAVE YOU ON THE EDGE OF YOUR SEAT FROM START TO FINISH
DEADLY, BRUTALLY FUNNY
VITAL AND ENTERTAINING
On a dig in the Australian outback, archaeologist Dr. Jacqueline Black unearths a mystical skull from a hidden mass grave. It talismanically transforms her into arse-kicking indigenous superhero Blackie Blackie Brown.
Her mission: to track down every last descendant of the men who killed her ancestors and have her revenge. It ain’t about forgiveness. It ain’t about reconciliation. This is about Blackie Blackie Brown: The Traditional Owner of Death.
The unstoppable Nakkiah Lui (Blaque Showgirls, ABC’s Black Comedy) and Declan Greene (Calpurnia Descending) team up with Barkindji, Birri-Gubba illustrator Emily Johnson and digital animation studio Oh Yeah Wow. The result is a hilarious live-action bad-arse blaxploitation superhero comic book that will have you baying for blood.
PRODUCTION PARTNERS AND SUPPORTERS
A Malthouse Theatre and Sydney Theatre Company production. The creative development of Blackie Blackie Brown was produced by Performing Lines with support from ACMI, the Australia Council for the Arts and Create NSW.
