Arabica Drama View Details Compare
Short
Synopsis

This Rose and Conlon musical looks at the international coffee market to show how developing countries are simply pawns in the money games played by the major industrial powers. Although we are encouraged to be more conscientious consumers, we still buy basic commodities at the supermarket with barely a thought to how they got there. The attractive shiny coffee packets we choose from disguise the fact that the people growing and picking this coffee are paid virtually nothing, and that their countries are bankrupt and at the mercy of the World Bank or the IMF. And yet how can it be that just about everyone else - coffee merchants, companies, speculators - profits from the enterprise? In ARABICA, Rose and Conlon bring us another powerful message that demands urgent attention.
