Meet the Quartos. Ben (David Wilson Barnes), Claude (Bryan Fenkart), Balth (Lucas Papaelias), and Pedro (James Barry). Their fans worship them. Scotland Yard fears them. And their former drummer will stop at nothing to destroy them. Can these fab four from Liverpool find true love in London and cut an album in seven nights? THESE PAPER BULLETS! is a modish ripoff of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing with a serious backbeat.

Adapted by Pulitzer Prize and Emmy Award nominated writer Rolin Jones (Friday Night Lights, Weeds) and featuring new songs by Grammy Award winning Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong, who wrote the Tony Award winning musical American Idiot, THESE PAPER BULLETS! is directed by Jackson Gay, who staged Jones's The Intelligent Design of Jenny Chow at Yale Rep in 2004.
