An odyssey of a young Frenchman in Dublin. After hearing about the Bataclan attacks back in Paris, author and performer Louis Deslis heads into the night to find comfort. From Paris to Sandymount, via Burgundy, Workmans and the Tallaght Luas stop, with lots of joie de vivre (that’s French for craic), this is a poetic punk portrait of coming to terms with where you’re from and where you find yourself.
Patchwork was met with critical acclaim & packed houses at Dublin Fringe Festival 2019. Playing at Project Arts Centre over two weeks this one man show became a festival hit and won the coveted Little Gem Award.
We plan to bring this show further and are excited to present it to Dublin audiences again in 2020, thanks to Bewley's Café Theatre and Dublin Fringe Festival.
*A work-in-progress of Patchwork was developed at Smock Alley Theatre's 'Scene & Heard' Festival 2019

The Arts Review ****
"One that reveals Deslis as a unique and engaging new voice showing some seriously impressive talent. A small slap that packs quite a punch, “Patchwork” is the perfect way to spend fifty afternoon minutes. "
