About The Production:

Remember a life without smartphones or tablets? When mail meant a handwritten letter and you planned a trip with a map not an app? We’re saying goodbye to paper in our lives and it’s happening so fast we’re not stopping to think about its significance.

Enter Russian poet, playwright and theatre director Evgeny Grishkovets with his charming one-man show that gives paper, and everything it represents, a proper send off.

Sitting at a desk surrounded by an old, ramshackle typewriter, books and stacks of paper Grishkovets delivers a passionate and hilarious monologue about the unavoidable disappearance of words such as ‘telegram’ or ‘manuscript’. He recalls childhood memories that would not have happened without ink stains or blotting paper and savours feelings that only come with handling a globe or glimpsing the recognisable handwriting of a loved one.

A tender tribute to once everyday things that are quickly becoming history, Farewell to Paper is a funny and poignant look at change in the digital age.
