An Emptied Frame of Mind (Papercuts Workshop)
    By Joel Lipson

    20:00, Thu 26th February 2015 at ADC Theatre (Larkum Studio)
    Lent Week 6

    The magician Nathaniel Taumont is putting on a show, and everybody who’s anybody is coming to see it. Enthusiasts, wits and skeptics alike have gathered in a small city theatre, and eagerly await what they know to be a most unusual performance: Taumont, with the aid of two loyal assistants and a curious, inscrutable frame, is going to raise the dead.

    Come and see the great figures of the ancient world, in all their imperial splendour, come once more to life before your eyes! Watch as the frame, with all its intricate workings, communes with spirits long departed, eager to impart their wisdom to a welcoming and sage modernity!

    Pay no heed to the look of disquiet in their eyes, or to the trembling of their borrowed, bruised body. Taumont is a master of the stage, and this is all, of course, merely a performance.


    Papercuts is our new rehearsed reading programme.

    We believe that the best way to help writers and their work develop is to get the script on its feet and spoken. Papercuts is produced in the Larkum Studio at the ADC Theatre, and is intended to let the writer see their work given a voice.

    Come along, grab a drink from the bar, and watch new theatre in its purest form.
