AFTER winning the Fringe First award at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2008, The Paper Birds present their critically acclaimed new show In a Thousand Pieces, at the Redbridge Drama Centre.

Ice creams, suitcases, floorboards and buttons tell the physically and visually moving tale of a young Eastern European girl and her journey to England.

A beautifully woven patchwork of accounts, misunderstanding, movement, text and live original music, In a Thousand Pieces is a touching and delicate depiction of the violent, isolated and brutal world home to thousands of women forced into the British sex trade.

The Paper Birds are an all female collective based in Leeds, West Yorkshire.
