The Paper Escaper

The Paper Escaper - Presented by Terrapin

What happens when a book character won’t stay in their place? Benny, the plucky puppet protagonist in The Paper Escaper, knows they are destined for greater things than a simple pop-up book.

But in a world that’s trying to squash Benny between its pages – from a wily dancing fire to a disillusioned illustrator – Benny will need the help of a new friend to achieve their dreams.

Terrapin visited over 100 Tasmanian primary schools with The Paper Escaper in 2022, bringing its immersive world and vibrant characters to audiences aged 5 – 12.

The Paper Escaper is part of the Theatre North 2023 Season.
