City of Gold

A Black Swan State Theatre Company of WA and Sydney Theatre Company production as part of Perth Festival
By Meyne Wyatt

Breythe is never just an actor. Always an Indigenous actor. Always in the black show, the black play. Put him in that Australia Day lamb ad. Get that ‘authenticity’. That’s what the people want. Give them what they want. Get that big payday. Even if it draws criticism from your community.

But a messenger bird comes for him. His father is dead. Head home. Back to Kal to grieve. Back to his family shattered by pain and violence that won’t be laid to rest.

City of Gold is an unflinching force of drama that urgently questions injustice and racism in Australia today, and asks: have things changed?

After critically acclaimed productions in Brisbane and Sydney, and an explosive four minutes of television on Q&A, this semi-autobiographical story written by and starring proud Wongutha-Yamatji man, Meyne Wyatt (The Sapphires, Redfern Now, Mystery Road), is coming home to WA in a new co-production with Sydney Theatre Company.

Wyatt’s sharp and breathtaking dialogue will stay with you long after you leave and is matched only by his powerhouse performance.

“This show cuts right to the core of Meyne’s lived experience as a young Black man in Australia. It is unrelenting and honest.”
Shari Sebbens, Director.
