BLACKIE BLACKIE BROWN:
THE TRADITIONAL OWNER OF DEATH
By Nakkiah Lui

World premiere

Reconciliation… or revenge?

Somewhere in the Australian bush, mild-mannered archaeologist Dr Jacqueline Black is conducting a survey on a site intended for the new factory of a shadowy corporation. She’s under pressure to provide the all-clear, but when her dig uncovers a mass grave, she picks up a skull and is immediately over-powered by the spirit of her Aboriginal great-great-grandmother. Blackie Blackie Brown, cold-blooded vigilante, is born.

In a no-holds-barred gore-fest, she’s going to kill all the descendants of the men who massacred her ancestors. White people, watch out. You could be one of them.

Paying homage to blaxploitation movies, Blackie Blackie Brown features the work of Barkindji, Birri-Gubba illustrator Emily Johnson and animations by visual effects whiz-kids Oh Yeah Wow. Nakkiah Lui’s script matches perfectly the lo-fi, hi-camp style of director Declan Greene (Sisters Grimm’s Calpurnia Descending).

With break-out newcomer Megan Wilding in the title role, and the ever-hilarious Ash Flanders playing every white person she needs to kill, this two-hander is a wild ride that will have you laughing out loud while squirming in your seat.

All in all, it’s precisely the violent and uncompromising take-down that our country’s genocidal history had coming.

"Your white meat is DONE, motherf***er."
Blackie Blackie Brown
