Created and presented by The Paper Birds and co-produced with Live Theatre
A loud, live, love song to not having it all figured out
We asked young people, living in today’s world of mobile phones and google, to write to us and ask us anything. Nothing was off limits. We received over 100 letters from across the UK. This show is our reply.
Inspired by the magazine problem pages we read growing up in the 90s and 00s, in Ask Me Anything The Paper Birds become the agony aunts. The show explores what young people think, want and worry about today. It’s about what different generations can learn from each other.
Ask Me Anything is a new immersive show from multi-award winners The Paper Birds, whose previous shows include Mobile, Thirsty and In a Thousand Pieces.
Set in our teenage bedrooms, it features original live music from celebrated singer-songwriter Rosie Doonan and The Paper Birds’ unique brand of mischief and mayhem.
This is a show for teenagers, parents, grandparents, and everyone in between, who, like us, are still figuring it all out.
So, take off your shoes, pull up a cushion, and come on in.
