Animals Out Of Paper
West Coast Premiere
by Rajiv Joseph
directed by Amy Glazer
January 19 – February 27, 2010 (Opens January 23rd)
Fresh from New York we are proud to present a playwright that is about to explode nationally. His NY hit, Bengal Tiger in the Baghdad Zoo will re-open in LA this May after a sensational run earlier this year.
Animals Out of Paper begins as a quirky comedy about origami experts and deftly transforms into a melancholy reminder that close friends make the worst messes. The journey from one extreme to the other is surprising and specific, pulling honest insights out of unusual situations. When a world renowned origami artist opens her studio to a teenage prodigy and his school teacher, she finds that life and love can’t be neatly arranged in this dramedy about finding the perfect fold.
