A Thousand Papercuts Still Skin Deep

by Hector T.J. Huang

Directed by Tianxin Tian World Premiere

2 timelines, 2 cities, and 4 queer friends.

1 anonymous hookup, 1 ex-(platonic) girlfriend, 1 potential boyfriend, and 1,000 paper cuts that hurt way much more than they appear to - they cut deep into your soul where nobody can see.

A Thousand Papercuts Still Skin Deep is a raw but tender play that dissects and attempts to heal queer angst and relationships with a dash of offbeat humour. 

Set in Taipei and London, Hector’s modern, unflinching text shines a spotlight on growing up queer in East Asia in a story rarely seen onstage anywhere.

Written by Hector T.J. Huang, directed by Tianxin Tian, and featuring an East-Asian all-lgbtq+ cast.
