Location: 
Farnsworth auditorium

On three Saturday afternoons this winter, the Farnsworth and Everyman Repertory Theatre are teaming up to present ‚ÄčArt on Stage: Everyman Rep at the Farnsworth, a series of dramatic readings of unique and entertaining arts-themed plays in the Farnsworth auditorium. 

On Saturday, March 4, 1 p.m., local actors will perform Animals Out of Paper. Whether they end poorly or well, relationships always leave a mark… In this uncommon love story, Andy, a high school teacher and avid fan, pressures the reclusive Ilana, a world-famous origami artist, into becoming an unwitting mentor to a troubled teenage prodigy named Suresh. These three intriguingly flawed characters begin to reshape and mold each other’s lives in much the same way they fold and crease their paper art.
