Nice Nails

a full-length play

Synopsis

Nice Nails is set in a small Korean-owned nail salon, where immigrant ladies spend their days toiling like servants over the fingers and toes of their mostly obnoxious customers. As word spreads of labor department crackdowns, a manicurist gets drawn in by a new customer who is not like the others, and who happens to be a transgender man. These two people, so different in their origins, yet so similar in their invisibility, become entangled in each other, as the world of this salon seems to be coming apart.
