About the Show

Straight White Male: Norm and Ahmed by Alex Buzo followed by Radha and Ryan by Nick Parsons.

1968. An empty street, late at night. A white man stops an Asian student.
2024. It happens again.
Different men from different worlds. The same gnawing fear.

“Men are seriously confused and angry – but when men get angry they want to hurt someone … And mostly the first person they hurt is themselves.”

1968 Australian classic, Norm and Ahmed by Alex Buzo followed by 2024 new play Radha and Ryan by three-time AWGIE winner Nick Parsons. Two plays. One story.

Praise for other work by Nick Parsons:

Dead Heart
‘A gripping contempo drama set in the middle of the Australian wilderness, “Dead Heart” provides thought-provoking intrigue and suspense in a spectacular outdoor setting. It also is a notable showcase for co-producer Bryan Brown, in one of his best performances to date as a cop caught up in tribal aboriginal conflicts. Intelligent and timely, pic should find appreciative audiences around the world and fest exposure should drum up word of mouth for this classy item.’
– David Stratten, Variety

The Straits
‘…the 10-episode series has a solid story, plenty of forward momentum and, for the American viewer, an unfamiliar setting that supplies guilt-free exoticism … “The Straits” mixes gangster film and culture clash formulas in interesting ways and occasionally provides some slyly humorous dialogue.’
– Mike Hale, New York Times

Content Warning: Violence, discussion of rape and sexual violence and adult concepts, use of racist and homophobic slurs, mentions of suicide.
Produced and Directed by Nick Parsons
Cast: Danny McGinlay, Gursimar Kaur, Isaac Rajakariar, Sam Eade
Stage Management by Mikaela Innes
Lighting Design by Max Bowyer
