Hard as we try to bury the truth… sometimes it emerges in unexpected ways. Three funny and poignant short plays explore the records we keep and the stories they tell.

In “Dear Diary,” a queer woman discovers 8th grade diary entries detailing her first ever crush on a girl. In “Eguchi,” a woman recounts her great-grandmother's efforts to preserve her family's legacy amidst the austerity of World War II Japan. And in “Snow,” congressional archivists piece together official documents torn to shreds by an impulsive president.

"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. ...This show earns the distinction of being one of my "Picks of Fringe." "
