Paper Cut

Written by Andrew Rosendorf
Directed by Scott Hurran
Book Now

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.

Please note, we do not exclude other audience members from booking to see this performance.
