That's Racist is a 10-15 excerpt of a play, that was shortlisted for the Midsumma Queer Playwiting Award in 2021.
Melbourne's Midsumma Arts Festival asked for submissions of a 10-15 minute excerpt from a new play for their annual Queer Playwriting Award. The work That's Racist, was chosen along with seven other works.
Performers Jessica Norsworthy, Shae Kelly, Jai Wright and Jamie Turner brought the play to life, performing the excerpt in front of a panel of judges and live audience at Gasworks Arts Park in February 2021.
Although not ultimately selected for the grand prize, the work's shortlisting was both humbling and inspiring. The work will now be turned into a short film by Presidential Productions.
