FIFO – Fit In or F**k Off! explores the challenges fly-in fly-out (FIFO) workers and their families face, including the disconnect to family and friends, feelings of displacement, isolation, and the ever-present drug culture. The play follows two families, Jono, Mary and Janey, whose lives have been impacted by mining. Playwright Melody Dia weaves a confronting and visceral story as problems escalate, hit a turning point and explode – with secrets coming out.
FIFO – Fit In or F**k Off! is filled with wry humour, turbulent emotions and unflinching truths. This powerhouse of a play will leave the reader on the edge of their seat asking, ‘is it worth it?’
"Confronting yet tempered with Aboriginal humour…FIFO is an important story that could justifiably be dedicated to the moguls of the mining industry."
