Staged Reading: Animals out of Paper by Rajiv Joseph

  • farnsworth art museum 16 Museum Street Rockland, ME, 04841 United States (map)

Join us as we perform Animals Out of Paper. Whether they end poorly or well, relationships always leave a mark… In this uncommon love story, Andy, a high school teacher and avid fan, pressures the reclusive Ilana, a world-famous origami artist, into becoming an unwitting mentor to a troubled teenage prodigy named Suresh. These three intriguingly flawed characters begin to reshape and mold each other’s lives in much the same way they fold and crease their paper art.
