A young female switchboard operator becomes intimately involved in the affairs of a middle-aged couple when she overhears, and participates in, a series of telephonic exchanges between them. Patchface is a new play about technology, desire, communication, and the space between these things.
Patchface is currently in development with Pantheon Projects.
Development History
Patchface was in development at the TAP Centre for Creativity in London, Ontario from January to April of 2019. The project was made possible by grants from the Ontario Arts Council's Recommended Grants for Theatre Creators, and specifically by recommenders Pat The Dog Theatre Creation and Theatre Aquarius.
The project was first conceived of and workshopped at Theatre Ontario's Summer Theatre Intensive in Stratford, Ontario in August of 2018, where playwright Intson was a Summer Theatre Intensive Youth Scholarship Recipient, with dramaturgical support from Donna-Michelle St. Bernard.
Iterations of the project have appeared in the artist is present in her own self erasure (TAP Centre for Creativity, Upstairs/Downstairs Resident Artists' Show, September-November 2018), and Objects: London, Portrait of a City (TAP Centre for Creativity, Unscripted with Camille Intson feat. Kim Solga, March 2019). Selections of the work have also been read at WordsFest London Canada, the WriteNow! Speaker Series, and London Open Mic Poetry's Student Writer-in-Residence keynote event at Western University.
