Joy of the Worm (Papercuts Workshop)
    By Joel Lipson

    20:00, Thu 5th May 2016 at ADC Theatre (Larkum Studio)
    Easter Week 1

    Joshua and Llewellyn tell stories. Stories which always end the same way. Stories which offer no relief. Stories for an audience of one.

    They’ve been doing this for a long time now. Somewhere in the depths of a vast library filled with masks, Joshua and Llewellyn tirelessly weave old narratives into new faces. They tell and play out tales of all kinds: a fantastical child wanders lost in the forest; a priest receives a most unexpected confession; one man dreams of an impossible toilet.

    But there is always the Worm. It watches them work, feeds on their labours, stretches their lives. They’ve been doing this for a long time now. Llewellyn remembers, but Joshua thinks; when the shelves are full and their work is over and the Worm is fat, they’ll find their way out. They’ll complete themselves.

    They’ve been doing this for a long time now.


    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.
