BRIMMING WITH WICKEDLY HUMOROUS OBSERVATIONS ON GLOBALISATION, POLITICS AND FAMILY

The European premiere of RICE by Michele Lee, an acclaimed Asian-Australian playwright, directed by Matthew Xia.

Nisha is a young hotshot executive working for Golden Fields, Australia’s largest producer of rice. Ambitious and headstrong, she’s determined to become the first female Indian CEO in Australia. She’s close to sealing a contract with the Indian government, which would see her company take over India’s national rice distribution system. A secret deal worth billions.

Yvette, an older Chinese migrant, is the cleaner who sees to Nisha’s desk. Yvette has her own entrepreneurial ambitions, but her daughter faces court after participating in a protest against the unethical practices of a national supermarket chain.

The two form a powerful – if unlikely – bond as they navigate the complexities of their lives and the world at large.
