As a play, No Sugar explores the oppression of the Aborigines by a dominant white society. The play explores Australian history and identity and focuses on Indigenous issues. Theatre always tells us something about society and analysing theatre can give audiences different perspectives.No Sugar’s plot structure is quite traditional in that there is an obvious complication, series of events, climax and resolution (as well as an implied coda).
