THE PAPER ESCAPER
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A BOOK CHARACTER WON’T STAY IN THEIR PLACE?
Benny, the plucky puppet protagonist in The Paper Escaper, knows they are destined for greater things than a simple pop-up book. But in a world that’s trying to squash Benny between its pages – from a wily fire to a disillusioned illustrator – Benny will need the help of a new friend to achieve their dreams.
The Paper Escaper is designed for flexible touring presentation in both theatres and schools.
