Ensemble Theatre (NSW). Until April 24.
A light, engaging three-hander play, Animals Out of Paper builds on a wafer of plot, with genuine humanity, wit, awkward romance and a touch of hip-hop.
The Ensemble production works nicely despite the play’s rather too obvious central metaphor, comparing the marks left on life and relationships to the folds of origami. Perhaps the metaphor misses because origami tends to be talked about rather than integrated into the action, except as completed works.
