ArtsEmerson the World on Stage presents: La Nana
This award-winning dramedy twists and turns with emotion through one maid's journey of rediscovering herself. As the head maid in a Chilean household for over 20 years, she has integrated into the Valdes family, but her loyalty has driven her to dizzy spells due to overexposure of chlorine. Her position is threatened when her boss hires younger maids to assist her, and she schemes to drive away her competition. Poignant and funny, sad and heartfelt, this film examines the nature of subservience and the difference between employment and family.
