Black Border celebrates NAIDOC
HotHouse Theatre’s Black Border Ensemble will celebrate NAIDOC week with a showing of a short devised piece followed by a reading of Steven Oliver’s (Black Comedy) hilarious new work Proppa Solid.
It’s 2067. Paul Toppy, is your everyday Aboriginal President of Australia. The problem is Paul doesn’t know much about being Aboriginal. All that changes however, when one day, while on the election trail, Paul steps onto country.
Paul is flung back to 2014, where disgruntled, and not to mention highly inconvenienced, he happens on a family of not-quite-so-tall (obviously unrelated) Toppys, who welcome this new (obviously crazy) Toppy into their home and their lives. During his time with the Toppy Clan, Paul starts to question his beliefs about family and identity, and begins to discover the true meaning of success, while the family learn what might be achieved when hope is not lost.
