Riverside’s National Theatre of Parramatta and Sydney Theatre Company present
By Anchuli Felicia King
Directed by Priscilla Jackman
A nasty truth goes viral…
In Singapore, it’s just another day at the office of Clearday cosmetics. That is, until they discover that their new TV commercial has been leaked online. The video goes viral for all the wrong reasons. Someone is definitely going to get fired.
Anchuli Felicia King’s new play is a ruthlessly entertaining portrait of toxic corporate culture, casual racism and the complexity of pan-Asian relations. As the team at Clearday scrambles to contain the fallout, the open-plan, glass-door office proves to be a nest of secrets, lies and resentments.
This new Australian work is a co-production with Sydney Theatre Company.
King is an exciting, original young voice and it’s a play rich with twists, dark comedy and brutal honesty.
White Pearl dissects aspects of race and culture and contains content that may be confronting to some audience members.
This production contains strong language, adult themes and sexual references.
Watch our Q and A with playwright Anchuli Felicia King and Benjamin Law on 19 Oct 2019.
