by Meyne Wyatt
Directed by Shari Sebbens

“Being Black and successful comes at a cost.”

Following a breathtaking performance on ABC’s Q&A that went viral around the world, writer and performer Meyne Wyatt brings his acclaimed play to Sydney Theatre Company in an electrifying new production.

Breythe is slogging it out on the East Coast, building an acting career and trying to balance the road to success with honouring his heritage as a Wongutha-Yamatji man. When he’s called back to Kalgoorlie to mourn his father’s tragic death, he discovers a family reeling in pain and anger and a home he feels increasingly estranged from.

Inspired in part by his own experiences and amplified by his acerbic sense of humour, Meyne Wyatt has written a brutal, nuanced and moving portrayal of one family desperately working to break cycles of discrimination and a gripping piece of First Nations drama.

Directed by STC Resident Director Shari Sebbens (The 7 Stages of Grieving) and starring Wyatt himself along with Mathew Cooper, St John Cowcher, Simone Detourbet, Ian Michael, Myles Pollard and Trevor Ryan, City of Gold is a gripping and innovative mixture of uninhibited truth-telling, social satire, and heartbreaking realism. This is Australian theatre at its very finest.
