Animals Out of Paper
By Rajiv Joseph
Directed by Deborah Keller
When a world-renowned origami artist opens her studio to a teenage prodigy and his school teacher, she discovers that life and love can't be arranged neatly, in this observant and satisfying drama about finding the perfect fold. Deb Keller directs the three-person cast of LCC students with Monica Tanner as the artist, Llana; Boris Nikolovski as the teen prodigy, Suresh; and Michael Boxleitner as the teacher, Andy. "What draws me to this play are the shapes that emerge from the folding together of these peoples' lives," said director Deb Keller. "Just as every fold in a piece of paper in origami changes its history and potential, so too the worlds and stories of these characters fracture and fold into new arrangements as they share and forcibly pry into each other's lives." Animals Out of Paper, a 2008 Lucille Lortel Award nominee for Outstanding Play, was hailed as "pitch-perfect" by the New York Times. Rajiv Joseph went on to receive a 2010 Pulitzer Prize nomination for his 2010 play, Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo, being presented Sept. 18-28 by Peppermint Creek Theatre Co.
