Old Paper Houses

Ahmadinejad, Tara

This essay documents the creation of Old Paper Houses: a play that addresses the relationship between faith and doubt, in life and art. This play asks whether it is possible to sustain faith and community, whether one can sustain faith in a utopian pursuit, and what constitutes the failure of such a pursuit. The community of artists who created this play did so in response to shared personal struggles and a shared perspective about the immediate world around them.
