I want to be rich. I was always fighting against it, like it was a dirty secret or something.
And now Iâ€™ve got it, I can have whatever I want. I donâ€™t have to worry about anything.
I donâ€™t have to care about anything. I donâ€™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 Emirateâ€™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 Dubaiâ€™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.
