Produced by Ecclesia, Rua Arts & Soldiers Arts Academy in association with Theatre503
A young gay American soldier, Kyle, returns from Afghanistan after being injured in an IED blast. Only a paper cut. Or that’s what he wants his friends, family, and a potential new love to believe. Paper Cut is a raw exploration of the physical and emotional toll of returning soldiers and how they navigate their way through another minefield of returning home.
This is a love story through the prism of a soldier. Someone who will die for their country, even when their country tells them every day – in small and large ways – that they are less than. It’s an examination of what it means to be a man. And even more so, what it means to be a gay man?
Ecclesia is a theatre company dedicated to staging work about how big politics affect small people. Productions include Hidden by Nicola Werenowksa and Counting Stars by Atiha Sen Gupta, receiving a commendation for the Amnesty International Freedom of Expression Award.
Paper Cut is supported with funding from Arts Council England National Lottery Project Grants.
