Animals Out of Paper

Jan 28 - Feb 6, 2011

"Look at this paper. It has no memory. But fold it, even once, and suddenly it remembers something. It can never be what it was. Folds leave scars."
-Animals Out of Paper

Nominated for Outstanding Off-Broadway Play of 2009, don’t miss this wise and complex comedy about three origami experts who discover that their lives are as complicated as the paper they fold. World renowned origami artist, Ilana Andrews is in a rut. Her husband has left her, her three-legged dog has run away and she is suffering from a bad case of folder’s block. When she opens her studio to a teenage, hip-hopping origami prodigy and his High School Math teacher (who literally counts his blessings), their lives are unexpectedly folded together to create an unforgettable look at love, loss and the healing power of art.

“Rajiv Joseph is one of the most refreshing new playwrights I’ve ever encountered. He’s crafted a substantial play, funny and sad, down-to-earth and unpretentious, with a great deal of meaning.” -
