Opening Night: 14 October
TIMES: Fri and Sat: 7.30pm – 8.50pm

Maggie’s workplace, an industrial laundry servicing the luxury hotels of a tourist paradise, is ironically anything but paradise; working conditions are rife with dangers, discrimination and illegal practices. Thai immigrant Maggie determines she will make a difference, she will not be silenced, and she will be heard. Based on the lived experience of co-playwright Saengthien, this humorous, tender and powerful play expresses struggles felt by migrants in the workplace, especially those vulnerable because English is not their first language.
