The Paper Man at Tobacco Factory Theatres

About

The legendarily anarchic Improbable return to Bristol with The Paper Man, an intriguing true story of political protest, power and football. Improvisation impresarios, never shy to tackle the sensitive social and cultural complexities that affect us all, Improbable leave audiences surprised, unsettled and hugely entertained.

In 1938, Austrian football star Matthias Sindelar humiliated the Nazi regime by refusing to throw a match. A few months later, he was dead. Accident, suicide or execution? Inspirational little guy or yet another man and his ego? Who cares?

Middle aged, white British, football addict-in-recovery, Lee Simpson wants answers. He hires some women to make a show about football, Nazis, and our future. In a paper world of light and shadow, violence and dance, five performers work together on what sets them apart.

A Norfolk & Norwich Festival, La Strada, Graz and Soho Theatre co-commission. Co-produced with Norwich & Norfolk Festival. Supported by Cockayne - Grants for the Arts and the London Community Foundation.
