This vibrant and thought- provoking musical illuminates the world of five Filipino guest workers in Tel Aviv who care for elderly Orthodox men by day—and headline a drag show by night! Based on the true story behind a 2006 Israeli documentary, the Paper Dolls is a rich, unforgettable karaoke musical about the challenges that migrant workers face while yearning for citizenship. This American premiere plays as part of the 2018 Voices From a Changing Middle East Festival.
