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 was developed through an artist residency at the TAP Centre for Creativity in London, Ontario from January to April, 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.
A filmed premiere production of Patchface will stream virtually in the Spring of 2021, produced by Allswell Productions and directed by Hailey Hill in London, Ontario, Canada.
