It was a great pleasure to photograph the dress rehearsal of Papertown earlier this week of the Young Everyman Playhouse’s own devised and scripted promenade performance at Camp And Furnace.
Papertown represents the idyllic setting where everyone smiles and life runs smoothly and serenely under the careful control of chaperones in great coats.
The audience are taken through many scenes with a set made of paper including an admin centre full of smiling workers, a family home where they eat the same food at the same time every night and a needlework obsessed tailor.
Eventually the young folk in the play want to break out of the restrictions set and culminates in the cast bursting through a wall and out into the real world.
Brilliantly acted by the young actors of Liverpool and superbly directed by Matt Rutter and Chris Tomlinson of the Everyman Playhouse. If it comes round again it’s a must see.
