Penned by acclaimed Canadian-American playwright Oren Safdie, Unseamly takes its inspiration from the headline-making American Apparel sexual harrassment scandal. In this theatrical adaptation, popular international clothing company The Standard is known for its risqué billboards of nearly-naked models. Unseamly follows Malina, a Standard store manager who faces harassment and assault on the job. She's desperate to press charges, but her CEO boss, Ira, paints a picture of an opportunistic young girl he practically had to fight off. Notions of ethics and truth are put to the test in this depiction of the sexually-charged fashion industry. Catch the U.S. premiere of this critically-praised new play at New York's Urban Stages Theatre.
