THE UNSTOPPABLE BLACKIE BLACKIE BROWN IS BACK!

The hilarious, arse-kicking comic-book superhero returns. She’s raining down vengeance again, so every descendant of the men who killed her ancestors is doomed.

Sold-out seasons in Melbourne and Sydney saw Blackie Blackie Brown rally audiences to laugh, cheer and bay for blood. In the process, she became our nation’s favourite Indigenous superhero.

In 2019, Blackie Blackie Brown: The Traditional Owner of Death revisits Malthouse Theatre for one more strictly limited season. Secure your ticket early to see Australia’s leading lady of live-action blaxploitation animation one last time on the Beckett Theatre stage.
