In a week’s time, Paper Creatures Theatre will take to the stage as part of The Bunker’s latest venture: Breaking Out with Peter Imms’ Section 2.

Kander & Ebb’s repertoire is famously bleak with musicals that have focused on the rise of Nazism, torture and misery in a Latin American jail, racism in the Deep South and celebrity criminals and corruption in Chicago. Their shows are challenging, often making for very uncomfortable entertainment. So it makes for quite a paradox that The World Goes Round offers an evening of delightful musical theatre treats.
