New original play 'Rice' coming to the Orange Tree Theatre
16 May 2021
The Orange Tree Theatre will reopen from 22 May with The Recovery Season comprising of five productions. This will be the first time audiences have been in the Orange Tree Theatre for over 14 months.
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.
Working late nights in the office she encounters Yvette, an older Chinese migrant, who cleans up her mess. 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.
Rice comes to the Orange Tree Theatre from 9 October 2021 and will run until 13 November 2021
