Farewell To Paper

16 - 18 February 2018 State Theatre Centre of WA, Heath Ledger Theatre Buy tickets

Presented by Perth Festival 

Australian Exclusive

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 haven’t considered 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 lamenting the digital age
