Currah's life has just changed forever. She's hit the top of national best-seller lists for the controversial indigenous memoir Nobody's Girl, literary agent extraordinaire Ronnie Lowe has offered her a contract for the sequel, and the media is in a frenzy. The world goes mad for her story and Currah goes mad for the attention. But when it emerges that the memoir was actually written by starry-eyed white male social worker Ant, the lies are torn from the book with astonishing consequences.
Rick Viede is one of the bravest and most entertaining new voices in Australian theatre. He burst onto the scene when his first play Whore won the Griffin Award, toured to New York and took out the Queensland Premier's Literary Award. A Hoax is his provocative and hilarious second play and winner of the 2011 Griffin Award. Inspired by the recent spate of fabricated 'misery memoirs', this is a vicious satire on the politics of identity, modern celebrity and the peddling of abuse culture.
