Better Angels: A Parable
By Andrea Scott
Better Angels: A Parable is a story that is not uniquely Canadian but it will resonate with audiences due to its timely arrival. Since the play is about Modern Day Slavery (otherwise known as ‘Day Slavery’) it complements the challenges Canada is having with the Temporary Foreign Workers issue facing the nation. Not only does it speak to Canadians experiencing a difficult job market but it also addresses the issues of having a foreign worker in one’s home when no Canadian wants the job because of poor wages and intransigent, demanding employers.
Those employers are also our peers, people in their 30’s with small children who have better than average jobs who want live-in care but not willing to always pay industry standard wages.
