Lighten Up

Nicholas Brown,

Lighten Up
 
 
‘Bollywood comes to Griffin—sort of.’

In Australia, we like ’em blonde and bronzed. In India, it’s ‘fair and lovely’. So what happens if you’re stuck in between?

John Green is an Anglo-Indian Australian actor who dreams of being cast in his favourite TV soap, Bondi Parade. The problem is, his coloured contacts can’t hide the fact that his skin is more brown than white.

Meanwhile, his skin-bleached mum is determined for him to procreate with a blonde, white Aussie woman in order to rid the family of any sign of their ethnic heritage. All hell breaks loose when John falls in love with an Indigenous woman called Sandy.

This very funny play by actor (and Bollywood leading-man) Nicholas Brown and comedian Sam McCool tells a universal tale of identity, cultural assimilation and bleaching your bits.
