We are on tour now! Catch us at a venue near you…

Co-commissioned by Live Theatre & The Marlowe Theatre
The Paper Birds present


We are taught from a young age to aim high, to reach for the stars, to want more, more than our parents, more than the generations before us, to climb the social ladder. But as we surge forward, what are we leaving behind? And from our ladder in the stars, if we look back, what do we see?

An intimate 40-minute theatre show set in a caravan, based on interviews conducted in communities across the UK. Made using public funding from Arts Council England.
