Send More Paper: An Uplifting Tale About Murder
There is a place where people are dropping like flies. A place where people change what is possible. A place where they order a lot of flypaper.
Send More Paper is a true story of joy, mischief, love and deceit. A delicious blend of women, men, murder, sex, murder, love, murder, passion, murder, poison, murder, food and erm, murder. Sound appetising?
Send More Paper takes a darkly humorous look at the grisly true tale of a group of housewives
who systematically poisoned their husbands, parents, children and anyone who got in their way.
Tackling gender politics, power struggle, control and what it really means to take action, the show
mixes powerful storytelling and a killer soundtrack to tell a sinisterly funny, fast paced tale about
making a mark.
Warning: Not suitable for those of a delicate disposition.
Running time: 55 mins
Directed by Mark Calvert. Assistant Director: Meghan Doyle. Dramaturgy by Susan Mulholland. Designed by Andy Stephenson.
“Send More Paper is a brilliant black comedy that will leave you feeling unsettled… after you’ve stopped laughing.”
“There is a distinct simplicity to the show which adds to the intimacy and highlights the clever script and impressive delivery of the cast.”
“We’re hooked from the opening scene”
