What happens when playful banter...leads to ironic teasing...leads to identity theft...?
COLOURED ALIENS is a new comedy about an interracial couple navigating their romance in the context of racism.
COLOURED ALIENS plays with audience expectations. You’ve heard of ‘Colour-blind’ casting, this production features ‘Colour-reverse’ casting in a post-racial comedy with a twist. COLOURED ALIENS intermixes space Aliens and refugees to explore how far have we come since Federation, when non-whites were labelled ‘Coloured Aliens’ in official Government documents.
