Description

A "blisteringly funny satire” (Time Out) by one of Australia’s most exciting young playwrights, White Pearl comes to Adelaide after its sold-out 2019 Australian premiere with Riverside's National Theatre of Parramatta and acclaimed productions in London and Washington D.C.

Things are heating up in the oh-so-cool Singapore headquarters of Clearday™, an upstart player in the Asian skincare game. Sales of their new range – ‘White Pearl’ skin-whitening cream – are going through the roof, and the ambitious team of young women have their eyes to the sky. That is, until their new TV commercial is leaked online and starts going viral for all the wrong reasons. As the views climb, the mood in the office nosedives and the team scrambles to contain the fallout and save more than just their jobs in the process.

With a shrewd eye, acerbic wit and machine gun dialogue, Anchuli Felicia King deftly unravels toxic corporate culture, the complexity of Pan-Asian relations and racism in a wildly entertaining, gasp-inducing night at the theatre.
