Dubailand by Carmen Nasr:
Finborough Theatre 5th - 21st February 2017. Sunday, Monday and Tuesday's only.
“I want to be rich. I was always fighting against it, like it was a dirty secret or something.
And now I’ve got it, I can have whatever I want. I don’t have to worry about anything.
I don’t have to care about anything. I don’t even have to pretend I care.”
An oasis of free enterprise, no income taxes, no unions, no opposition parties. A paradise of consumption. A skyline on crack. Urban planning on steroids - Dubai. On the 88th floor of an unfinished skyscraper in the Emirate’s glittering skyline, the life of a migrant labourer becomes fatefully intertwined with that of Jamie, a British expat with his eye on the big time. Exploring the plight of Dubai’s migrant labour force, this urgent new play asks how much longer we can look the other way.
Dubailand won new playwright Carmen Nasr a 2017 Channel 4 Playwrights Scheme Playwright in Residence Bursary at the Finborough Theatre, supported by the Peggy Ramsay Foundation.
