How to Rule the World

Concert or Performance

11 Feb 2019 to 30 Mar 2019

An Aboriginal, an Asian and an Islander walk into a bar. It’s not the beginning of a racist joke, it’s the catalyst for a stinging satire on Australian politics from award-winning playwright Nakkiah Lui (Black is the New White).

Vic, Zaza and Chris are political insiders hustling their way to the top. They want influence, they want change, they want to take over Parliament House. They leave that bar drunk on power, with a plan to take over the world. First step: find a likeable white guy to use as a political puppet. What could possibly go wrong?

In the hands of STC Associate Director Paige Rattray, who brought us Lui’s smash-hit rom com Black is the New White, How to Rule the World is a fast-paced comedy that tackles their country’s myths of multiculturalism and the fair go. This motley group of political operatives are convinced they can beat the system from the inside. But will they change the system? Or will the system change them?
