“Paper Dragon focuses on a group of roommates in New York City struggling with the loss of a friend and family member and struggling with their identities, both personal and sexual. Nearly everything and everyone is up for debate. Eleanor is dating Jayson but loves her roommate Ronnie, who is dating Bot, whose girlfriend is an illegal immigrant in a sham marriage. Will everything work out in the end?”

“Dedicated to cultivating transatlantic work and collaboration, NyLon Fusion isn’t your average off off Broadway theatre company; they are ambitious and broad. Co-founded by Elliot Joseph and Ivette Dumeng, NyLon Fusion simultaneously produces shows, retains a company of actors, and supports a writers collective to develop new works. Their current project brings all of these elements into focus.
These are two lovely scripts, played out in brilliant and very different ways, both dealing with issues of life and death, direction, and overcoming our own selves. This company is excited and passionate about creating work, and it comes across in these exciting, passionate productions. This is truly worthwhile independent theatre.”
