Paper Men (2012)

27 July 2012 – 28 July 2012 @ Black Box, Telok Ayer Performing Arts Centre

Synopsis

Paper Men is a wonderful satire that centres around the fact that journalists will do anything for a story or to save their career.

Raymond Pathy is an idealistic newspaper intern who bites off more than he can chew when he follows senior reporter Leslie Teoh into a surreal world of blackmail, rumours and disappearing construction workers. Bending the rules to get a front page exclusive, they unintentionally unleash the enigmatic Ahmed Alamgir into the world.

Now caught between their ferocious editor, Andrew Sarchus, and an insanely zealous bureaucrat, Marilyn Rajan, Ray and Leslie have to decide between finding the truth or getting the greatest story of their careers by letting the country descend into chaos.
