After winning the 2019 Green Room Award for Best Independent Writing, Declan Furber Gillick makes his MTC debut with a hard-hitting and disarmingly funny play about family, love, sex and culture, and the personal and political cost of navigating it all in contemporary Australia.

Jacky is a blackfella with a bright future in the big city. He skilfully negotiates the gig economy, earning his keep as a cultural dancer and sex worker. Glenn is a white middle-aged record dealer, finalising a divorce and indulging a fantasy which leads him straight to Jacky. When Jacky’s brother Keith rolls into town, and Glenn’s ex-wife Linda suddenly needs an Aboriginal dancer, can Jacky keep up with demand?

This NEXT STAGE Original follows Furber Gillick’s multi-award winning play Bighouse Dreaming. Featuring Luke Carroll (Black is the New White), Kamil Ellis (Astroman), Greg Stone (A Doll’s House, Part 2) and Alison Whyte (Faith Healer), it’s a whip-smart, moving and eye-opening new play that tackles big ideas as it takes the temperature of the nation.
