Three great stories, well acted, fun and touching. Dear Diary got me in the feels. Audra Leffingwell is a wonderful young actress and Young Dana is a a real treat. When Dana hugs Young Dana, something clicked. My heart cracked open. ... full review
JIM HANNA certified reviewer June 19, 2019
Three wildly different short plays that still have much in common beyond the common themes of identity, history and paper. Namely: tight direction, great grounded acting, incisive writing with beautiful touches of comedy and even melancholy throughout. A brisk, deep, thought-provoking slate of plays.... full review

BRETT MOORE certified reviewer June 15, 2019
This was a brilliant and mostly touching trio of plays about identity and how one comes to terms with their own sense of it. The performances are tight and compelling, and the writing excellent. One of the scenes felt not quite in sync with the other two, but was well-performed and directed all the same.

There were three acts centered around the theme of paper and documents. The first two acts were autobiographical pieces that dealt with the search for identity of the writers (who also played themselves). The third act is also based on a true story, of Presidential archivists who must piece together the President’s ripped-up correspondence.... full review

"Paper Trails" was fantastic. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for humorous and touching short stories tied together by a single theme. Walking the tightrope between comedy and drama is never easy, but these three stories pulled it off so well. ... full review

Paper Trails was superbly put together, rarely do you see a vignette performance where each short shines as strongly as the others. If you don't believe it is possible to craft meaningful, succinct, and poignant storytelling in less than one hour, then you need to start paying attention to this production team.... full review
