The game is simple. The system isn’t. The stakes couldn’t be higher. In the Paper Game there’s only one rule that matters: win, or die trying.
Nu Sass is proud to have the World Premier of The Paper Game in the 2015 Capital Fringe Festival.

If you’ve ever quietly seethed while waiting in a doctor’s office or emergency room; if you’ve ever engaged in an argument about how #YesAllWomen is a thing; if you’ve ever raged over the fact that in 2015 #BlackLivesMatter is even an issue, this play is for you. A satirical look at the maze we all must navigate regardless of the particulars of the system, The Paper Game will touch everyone who’s ever had to call a 1-800 number and then dedicate what seems like the rest of their life to trying to get the right person to tell them the right thing to make everything work out right.
