Black is The New White by Nakkiah Lui

Prepare to be enthralled by a razor sharp romantic comedy that blends Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner with Meet the Fockers. At the centre is Charlotte Gibson, a lawyer with a brilliant career ahead of her. As her father Ray says, she could be the next female Indigenous Waleed Aly.

But she has other ideas. First of all, it’s Christmas. Second of all, she’s in love. The thing is, her fiancé, Francis Smith, is not what her family expected – he’s unemployed, he’s an experimental composer … and he’s white! Inviting him and his conservative parents to Christmas is a bold move that has all sorts of unintended consequences.

Adult themes, nudity
