paper chairs presents the Texas Premiere of PLANO written by Will Arbery and directed by returning paper chairs co-founder Dustin Wills. PLANO recently received its NYC debut with Clubbed Thumb. Now paper chairs is thrilled to give this very Texas play its very Texas premiere!
In PLANO, three sisters are each suffering from strange household plagues. The men in their lives keep disappearing or doubling; time keeps leapfrogging; and the slugs just won’t go away. Plano, Texas, seems to be not just a nearby city but also a malevolent existential state. The New Yorker recently described PLANO as “a David Lynch script performed as screwball comedy.” In the writer’s words: “It's about time moving so fast you don't have time to think. And dying while you're still alive. And not being able to help the people you love.”
