“It depends on who has locked you in what cage.” Ray Bradbury was right. This is one of the fascinating themes in Patchwork Lives. Quilter is a hoarder and seems “trapped” in the house she has filled with stories. But is she actually trapped by Society’s very limited attitude to those who don’t “fit in”? Before you get bogged down in weighty consideration, remember that this is a new comic play, with songs and music by the fantastic Matt Marks. The whole piece has been developed from stories given to us by the people of Nottinghamshire, so it’s contemporary and historical, funny and moving, with some pretty topical ideas at its core. There’s also some magical story-telling about people you might even know! Come along and see us at Buxton Fringe.
