805-4821 is a trans coming out story made out of other stories: a dialogue from Shakespeare’s Hamlet, a half-remembered swim lesson, and an 80,000-word Facebook correspondence.
Initially conceived for an overhead projector, We Quit Theatre presents a live-typed virtual version of the performance. 805-4821 explores memory, identity, and love in an age of apocalypse. Not all men are men. Welcome to the movies!
Based in Winnipeg, We Quit Theatre is the performance project of Gislina Patterson and Davis Plett. Their work 805-4821 was awarded the Buddies in Bad Times Vanguard Award for Risk and Innovation at SummerWorks. They are currently developing i am your spaniel, or, A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare by Gislina Patterson.
