SynopsisIn 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 Andy, an energetic high school teacher, and his student prodigy Suresh, who urge Ilana back into the world. Animals Out of Paper is a funny, poignant play about the collision of mismatched people and the complicated ways we hurt, heal and love those around us. Animals Out of Paper is a part of Next Up: three productions showcasing Chicago's next generation of artists, in collaboration with Northwestern University's MFA programs in Direction and Design.
