Switch Triptych
By Adriano Shaplin
Directed by Deborah Neville
November 8-15, 2019
Laura C Muir Performing Arts Theatre

TICKETS: switchtriptych.bpt.me

Set in a 1919 New York City telephone exchange on the eve of automation, Switch Triptych focuses on three Bell Atlantic 'hello girls' and their luckless male managers. Together they make up a microcosm of post-war urban society where the meanings of gender, technology and labor are shifting underfoot. A sexy play about labor history and clashing ideologies written by Edinburgh Fringe First winner Adriano Shaplin.
