A work-in-progress showing
Inspired by the Greek chorus and the golden age of musical theatre, Paper. Scissors. Stone. tells the interwoven stories of three generations of women living in Shrewsbury, all linked by a local school. Over the course of a weekend, each character is forced to confront how much they control their behaviour – or maybe how much they are controlled by it.
Paper. Scissors. Stone. subverts recognizable theatrical conceits to crack open the gender conditioning we recognize, but don’t always see.
Paper. Scissors. Stone. had showcase performances at VAULT Festival (London) on Sat 3 & Sun 4 March 2018 and at Elevator Festival (Live Theatre, Newcastle) on Wed 14 March 2018.
