Acclaimed actor and playwright Jada Alberts has had enough of the scourge of suicide impacting Indigenous Australians, and she's using her words to address the issue.

Her play 'Brothers Wreck' is about to debut in Adelaide after a season at the Malthouse Theatre in Melbourne.

She told the ABC she was inspired to write the show after her own experience of the issue.

"I think people are touched by suicide no matter what colour you are," she said.
