“A piece of paper, once folded, is never the same again; it has a memory,” says world-renowned origami artist Ilana Andrews. “Eventually it probably feels like too many things have happened to it. It’s all twisted in something so far from what it used to be. After all, folds leave scars.” When Andrews opens her studio to a teenage prodigy and his school teacher, she discovers that life and love can’t be arranged neatly in this drama about finding the perfect fold.

Playwright Rajiv Joseph was nominated for the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo and won the 2011 Glickman Award for Theatreworks’ world premiere production of his play The North Pool. His newest play, The Lake Effect, opened in Chicago in April, 2013.
