A book is a book

This isn’t a book.
In this music theatre production two gents literally take you with them on a journey. They have lots of suitcases with them.
Suitcases full of books, books full of music, pages full of crazy facts, pages full of unexpected jokes, paper full of little sounds.
Is it about passing the time?
Is it about losing yourself in reverie?
The gents make it colourful, in their head, in the book, in your head
like a page that flies, a car that travels from one fold to the next and on to the next,
a dot on a map which jumps, overboard,
a hole in the paper, a twist, a head, a planet.
