About A History of Paper

By Oliver Emanuel & Gareth Williams

It starts when she puts a note through his letterbox. 'Hello Number 4, this is Number 6. Please could you SHUT THE **** UP? Ta.' Not a promising beginning, but... they meet, they fall in love, they get married.

Then one day a letter arrives that will change them, and the world, forever…

A musical love story about a man and a woman and the little bits of paper that make up a life.

Part of Made in Scotland Showcase 2024.
