"Mobile neatly turns the caravan into a magic box where every cupboard and drawer springs a surprise."

The Guardian

A co-commission with Live Theatre and The Marlowe Theatre, The Paperbirds present Mobile.

An ordinary looking caravan. An extraordinary experience. A treasure trove of magical theatre and digital wizardry.

We are taught from a young age to aim high, to reach for the stars, to want more, more than our parents, more than the generations before us, to climb the social ladder. But as we surge forward, as we grapple for university places and promotions, what are we leaving behind? And from our ladder in the stars, if we look back, what do we see?

Mobile explores our sense of home, belonging, aspiration, and the realities of social mobility. Made for audiences of up to 8 people at a time, powerful true stories and dreams for the future are revealed through video projection, recorded interviews, original music and interactions with a performer in this intimate 40-minute show.
