Cabbagetown: 3 Women... an Oral History Play with Music - September 13 - September 22, 2019

The Patch Works Art & History Center


As a community museum, The Patch Works Art & History Center could not put on this amazing production without the hard work and generosity of our board members, technical staff, donors, sponsors, advertisers and all our awesome volunteers. We believe that community theater represents all people, and that is why The Patch Works is proud to host the first play in the Joyce Brookshire Amphitheater. Our cast and crew have been working hard to make the production of Cabbagetown: 3 Women, an Oral History Play with Music sensational.


The Patch Works Art & History Center would like to thank the following people and organizations for making this production so special:
