About the Play:

Patchwork is a short play for children by Carol Lauck. A group of fun fables and foibles come alive as each story is told with audience interaction and fast paced fun and laughter!

Patchwork is a cleverly designed ensemble of old fashioned fables and contemporary foibles that is stitched together with wit and wisdom. Fast paced, funny and thought provoking, each scene is visually and mentally stimulating. Promising at the start to "wiggle your giggle and tickle your noodle," the play, with its collection of humorous and wise scenes, or "patches," offers actors the opportunity to portray over 41 characters in 14 scenes. Patches of stories intertwine to make a delightful family theatre experience! Each scene is introduced by a patch ready to be sewn, with the completed quilt presented at the conclusion.

Patchwork premiered in 1982 at the Little Lake Dinner Theater in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania and has been revived several times by Looking Glass Theatre Company – including a production that featured Ming Na when she was a student at Carnegie Mellon. One production at St. Edmonds Academy in Pittsburgh featured an entire class of students, but the play is often done with just four main characters.
