‘Thanks for having us Camden Fringe and Exeter Fringe. We had a blast!’


It throws up all sorts of stuff. 

Come and see how we bring democracy to life on stage and join us to watch three candidates – Rox, Paper and The Scissors – battle to become school president, only to find out the hard way that not all elections are fought fairly.

As head girl Paper is squashed between the might of autocratic school bully Rox and reckless class clown The Scissors, she must fight to restore her reputation from a false accusation of vandalism, and stop malign forces from seizing power of the school council.

Tour Dates

‘Rox Paper and The Scissors’ is back on tour to schools and theatres soon! Public performance dates include:

The show lasts for an hour and it’s fab! If you don’t believe us that democracy can be a giggle, then check out these testimonials:

“It was interesting that they made democracy seem really fun, as I thought it was boring.”

“I can’t improve it as it was very funny and perfect.”

“You wrote this play like William Shakespeare.”
