Anchuli Felicia King’s play is set in a cosmetic start-up company in Singapore, which produces a skin whitening product. The day has not begun well. Their new TV commercial has been leaked and is going viral for all the wrong reasons. Someone will surely be fired. When the National Theatre of Parramatta and Sydney Theatre Company co-produced White Pearl in 2019, Limelight gave it four-and-a-half stars. Now QT is staging that production, directed by Priscilla Jackman. Strap yourself in for a hilariously funny, dramatic roller-coaster that will have your jaw on the floor at the brazen, daring brilliance of the writing.

In Singapore, it’s just another day at the office of Clearday cosmetics. That is, until they discover that their new TV commercial has been leaked online. The video goes viral for all the wrong reasons. Someone is definitely going to get fired.

Can the high-flying team at Clearday rise above their personal squabbles to save the company?

As they scramble to contain the fallout before the American market wakes up, the open- plan, glass-door office proves to be a nest of secrets, lies and resentments.

Anchuli Felicia King’s new play is a ruthlessly entertaining portrait of toxic corporate culture, casual racism and the complexity of pan- Asian relations.
