we, the invisibles

November 10–20, 2022


In 2011, the director of the International Monetary Fund was accused of sexual assault by a hotel maid, Nafissatou Diallo, but all charges were dismissed. Ripping a page from the global headlines, we, the invisibles shares the rarely heard stories of people like Diallo, a metonym for the otherwise invisible people from all over the globe working in New York City’s ultra-luxury hotels. By turns funny, poignant, and brutally honest, Susan Soon He Stanton’s contemporary play is an investigation of the complicated relationship between movers and shakers…and the people who change their sheets.
