Be My Friend!

It’s summer and we want to turn strangers into friends, so come on over, step into our tent and compete to be Paper Cut’s new ‘best friend’!

This fun, interactive performance event is designed to be experienced by three people at a time: play some games, take some chances, tell some stories and be a part of Newcastle's theatre-making history!

In 2015 Paper Cut will transform the experiences and stories shared in Be My Friend into a new show called Hello Stranger. Have you ever befriended a stranger? Has a strange person ever befriended you? Hello, Stranger will explore those briefest of human relationships in all their comical, touching and unnerving magnificence.

So step right up, stranger! You know you wanna be our friend.

Because there ain't no party like a Paper Cut party.

This event is supported by Newcastle Now.

Where and When:

Be My Friend will be happening in two Newcastle locations - Hunter Street Mall on Fridays and Honeysuckle on Sundays

We'll be set up in a white party marquee which you'll recognise by all of the amazing hand-made decorations we've been working on.
