The Post-Colonial play 'No Sugar' by Jack Davis, first published in 1986, is based in the South West of Western Australia, following a family of multi-generation Nyoongar people. The text shows the mistreatment and misunderstanding, shown by white authorities in the 1930's. 'No Sugar' was a request for white Australians to understand that Aborigines felt dispossessed of their land and spirituality. White intervention has drawn a line between the past and the future. Indigenous Australians cannot have their preferred future due to their reliance on the white Australians.
