What's On in Adelaide

Norm and Ahmed

It is midnight in 1968. A Pakistani student and a middle-aged white Australian war veteran meet at a bus stop resulting in a striking conversation about race, culture, and politics. The White Australia policy has been consigned to the dustbin in 1966, but Australians still weren’t used to seeing many Asians. In this time of rapidly approaching multi-cultural change, the play confronts us with that peculiar clash between welcoming the coloured stranger and the deep suspicion and fear of that same stranger. This classic Australian play by Alex Buzo explores this conflict with a sharp pen. A pen that still scratches today.

When these six dead queens turn into loud and sassy pop princesses they are truly six of the best.
