Paper Dolls, written by Philip Himberg, Artistic Director of Sundance Theatre, is adapted from the documentary film by Tomer Heymann, which has won multiple awards including three at the 2006 Berlin International Film Festival. Click here for the full performance schedule and to purchase tickets.

“You know, Yossi, we couldn’t dress like this in the Philippines… wear earrings, dye my hair, put on make up, lipstick. It’s forbidden.”

In Tel Aviv, Israel, a group of Filipino immigrants work as live-in carers for elderly Orthodox Jewish men. Six days a week, they provide dedicated support to their employers. But on the seventh day, they transform into a homespun, sassy musical drag act. Meet the Paper Dolls!

An extraordinary true story exploring an unlikely collision of cultures and the universal desire to find ‘home’.
