About the Play:

paper SERIES is a full-length drama by David Yee. A piece of paper can shape your life. It can record your history or build something new. A series of monologues that imaginatively explore six lives and their curious connections to something as inconsequential as a piece of paper. Particularly suitable for schools and play contests.

paper SERIES is a collection of six short plays that explore how we use paper to create, amuse, define and communicate. An ill-advised waiter finds new uses for fortune cookies, a counterfeiter's daughter learns the family business, an unhappy orphan re-creates her parents from paper cut-out dolls, a woman tries to write the perfect "Dear John" letter, a cab driver replaces his taxi license with his medical credentials, and a man trades his relationship for an origami crane are the vibrant characters who are brought to life in this anthology of six monologues that use paper as a linking device for poignant observations about immigrant experience and racial stereotypes. From drama to comedy to crime-thriller, David Yee brings us a variety of plots and characters in this series of imaginative, thought-provoking vignettes. It is, at times, quiet and reflective, raucous and violent… changing tone with every fold.

paper SERIES premiered in 2011 by Cahoots Theatre Company at the Young Centre for the Performing Arts, Toronto, Ontario. Since then the play has been staged at several professional theatres across Canada, and performed in high school and college theatre productions as a showcase of student talent.

Cast: 3 women, 3 men
