Coming to the Bille Brown Theatre from June 17 to July 10, corporate satire White Pearl will tackle some seriously contentious themes while providing you with some belly-aching laughs to boot. White Pearl is set in the offices of Clearday, a cosmetics start-up in Singapore that has made the big time. When a not-so-nice video goes viral for all the wrong reasons, the Clearday staff members have to quickly contain the fallout and scramble to keep their heads above water – and off the chopping block.
Penned by creative genius Anchuli Felicia King, White Pearl touches on some timely topics such as toxic workplace culture, not-so-casual racism and how capitalism creates deep-seated insecurity. The play stars some of Australia’s finest theatre talent – Deborah An, Cheryl Ho, Mayu Iwasaki, Nicole Milinkovic, Matthew Pearce, Vaishnavi Suryaprakash and Lin Yin.
