“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 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.
Exploring the plight of Dubai’s migrant labour force, this urgent new play asks how much longer we can look the other way.
