Yirra Yaakin Theatre Company and Goolarri Media present the world premiere of FIFO – Fit In or F**k Off! by Melodie Dia.

The boom went bust, and now Jono’s in a desert mine site’s donga, trapped in debt and a lifestyle that is slowly strangling his liyarn. Jono’s wife Mary feels stuck in the high-flying life of the lonely FIFO parent and has decided they’d be better off cutting their losses and moving home to Broome, close to family and her younger sister Janey. But the old neighbourhood, and her sister, ‘ain’t what they used to be’. Janey is locked in her house, sliding into stand-up comedic delusion as she awaits her FIFO husband Brad’s return. But where is Brad? And where’s their young daughter Katie? Something’s gotta give, but what will it take to stop the slide into the deepening pit that threatens to engulf them all?

In a country abundant with natural resources, mining is a way of life. This warm, tautly written drama pulls no punches as it explores the impact of mining on two Indigenous families, developed from extensive interviews with miners from across the country and lived experience of the writer. Starting in Broome with Goolarri Media’s Indigenous Writers program, and developing with the support of Yirra Yaakin, Playwriting Australia, Ilbijerri and Moogahlin’s Yellamundie First Nations Play Festival, FIFO – Fit In or F*ck Off! brings us an exciting new voice from the Kimberley, former FIFO worker Melody Dia.

FIFO – Fit In or F**k Off! is among the first theatre shows to be presented in Perth after the COVID-19 lock down.

A Post Show Q&A and AUSLAN Interpreted Performance will take place on Tuesday 20 Oct, and an Audio Described Performance will take place on Wednesday 21 Oct.
