Ivory, tortoise shells, human teeth – you can make jewellery out of almost anything. Orla the vegan is disgusted by this, but Orla the sales assistant leans right into it. In Glimmer of a Rainbow, Orla battles with her own insecurities and struggles with who the world tells her she is versus who she wants to be. Throughout the play, Orla gets wrapped up in petty workplace dramas at Rhinestones, along with constantly dealing with belittling boss Brenda, until a tragedy in Orla’s personal life brings her back down to earth. Directed by Ralph Riddle.
