A heart-felt and funny portrait of immigrant life.

This show has now closed. See our list of theatre tickets for shows currently on sale.

Inside the toilets of a nightclub, Sophie and Abiodun are Nigerian immigrants who work as attendants for no wage, subsisting on tips alone. This is where they first met and soon they will celebrate their one-year anniversary. Sophie is optimistic and obsessed with horoscopes and Cosmo. She sees herself as a “PA to the stars” and pampers her customers like they are celebrities. Abiodun has a degree in physics. He is charming, smart, and increasingly frustrated with how they are being treated by management. He sees this all as “class warfare”.
