"Animals out of Paper" - Play Reading

  • Currier Museum of Art 150 Ash Street Manchester, NH, 03104 United States (map)

theatre KAPOW will present a play reading of Rajiv Joseph’s Animals Out of Paper, a funny, poignant play about the collision of mismatched people and the complicated ways we hurt, heal and love those around us. In the wake of her recent divorce, origami artist Ilana has barricaded herself in her studio—surrounded by paper cranes and Chinese take-out boxes. Her seclusion is interrupted by an energetic high school teacher, and his student who urge Ilana back into the world. Following the reading, Dr. Landis K. Magnuson, professor of theater at St. Anselm College will lead a brief discussion connecting the play to special exhibition Deep Cuts: Contemporary Paper Cutting.

Cost: Free with Museum general admission
