Paper Cuts Youth is a showcase of comedic & satirical monologues performed by Canberra's most exciting and hilarious young actors. Led by a production team of talented women - Matilda Saddington, Kara Blackburn, Glynis Stokes and Anna Khan - audiences will be entertained by unique characters who will help answer some of life's most profound and not-so-profound questions, such as:

* If Jane Austen ran a relationship advice column, what would it say?
* What does a mental breakdown look like as a dance routine?
* What should you say to your boss when she tells you your skirt is too short?
* How does a hobbit become an elf?
* What happens when a Liberal Party-supporting carnivore falls in love with a Feminist vegan?
* How can a school principal get students to stop playing on their phones?
* Why is going to the beach so terrible?
* Is it creepy to accidentally-on-purpose bump into a hot guy while he's jogging around the lake?
* How long does it take to get ready to go to Bunnings?
