A Paper Birds Production
Co-commissioned by Live Theatre and The Marlowe Theatre
We are taught from a young age to aim high, to reach for the stars, to want more, to climb the social ladder. But as we surge forward, grappling for university places and promotions, what are we leaving behind? And from our ladder in the stars, if we look back, what do we see?
Mobile is The Paper Birds’ second show in a trilogy about class in modern Britain. An intimate 40-minute theatre show set in a caravan, based on interviews conducted in communities across the UK, exploring our sense of home, belonging, aspiration, and the realities of social mobility.
Powerful true stories and dreams for the future are revealed through video projection, recorded interviews, original music and interactions with a performer.
“Mobile neatly turns the caravan into a magic box where every cupboard and drawer springs a surprise” The Guardian
The caravan will be located in The Roses' car park.
