Co-commissioned by Live Theatre/The Marlowe Theatre A Paper Birds production MOBILE 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, what are we leaving behind? And from our ladder in the stars, if we look back, what do we see? An intimate 40-minute theatre show set in a caravan, based on interviews conducted in communities across the UK. "Mobile neatly turns the caravan into a magic box where every cupboard and drawer springs a surprise" (The Guardian).
