A boy. A paper plane. An unforgettable adventure.

In this family-friendly show from critically acclaimed theatre company Animal Engine (Petunia and Chicken, Darlings), a lonely boy needs a friend — so he folds one out of a piece of paper! When his paper plane flies too far, it's up to him to journey across land, air, sea, and even outer space to find it — and grow up along the way.

All performed in breathtaking detail by one actor on stage, Animal Engine Co-Artistic Director Karim Muasher, without a single word. Created in collaboration with visionary director Ryan Underbakke (Children's Theatre Company's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Live Action Set's Seven Shot Symphony, Taous Khazem's Sunrise at Midnight). With original music by whimsical composer John Hilsen.

Inspired by Antoine de Saint-Exupery's world famous novel Le Petit Prince, Windsor McCay's groundbreaking comic strip Nemo in Slumberland, and any story of children going on fantastical adventures. The show is extremely visual and appropriate for audiences of all ages, though it is best suited for ages 8 and up.

Triple Espresso tells the story of three guys whose bid for showbiz fame and fortune ended in 4-minutes of magnificent failure on national television. Hugh Butternut, Buzz Maxwell, and Bobby Bean tell their rags-to-rags story earnestly, with hysterical results. Butternut is a musician, a vulnerable soul with a lounge lizard smile; Maxwell is an uncertain magician with an attitude; and Bean is an irrepressible, all-over-the-map entertainer with big dreams. The laughter is infectious and the comedy appeals to everyone from first graders to college students to baby-boomers to grandparents.

Their racy plan to raise the money involves them and fellow Women’s Institute members tastefully posing nude for an annual calendar.

The successful sales and media storm that follows puts Chris  and Annie’s friendship to the test, while also proving “the flowers of Yorkshire are like the women of Yorkshire, the last phase of life is always the most glorious.”
