A revenge tale about a former college student who forges essays for cash, the grad student who becomes her lover, and the professor who discovers their scheme.
The Paper Store is an adaptation of Katharine Clark Gray‘s acclaimed play 516 (five-sixteen), which was workshopped at the NY International Fringe Festival in 2007 and singled out as a must-see production, with four out of four stars on Time Out New York. The play received its professional debut through Philadelphia Theatre Workshop in 2010, and plans to adapt it to film began shortly thereafter.
Katharine and her husband, Nicholas Gray, were producing partners at A Chip & A Chair Films for eight years before branching off on their own with Uncompromised Creative. This new company partnered with Jonathan Gray (no relation) as Producer and Production Counsel (Precious; Beasts of the Southern Wild; The Station Agent), casting legend Bonnie Timmermann (Heat, Bull Durham, Miami Vice, and dozens more for Michael Mann, Ridley Scott, and Tony Scott), Producer John Grossman of Front Wheel Productions, and Co-Executive Producers Actium Pictures to make The Paper Store into Uncompromised Creative’s feature debut.
