Storyline

This satirical comedy-meets-musical clashes the folklore of Soviet era oppression with the mindless, excessive consumerism of the eighties. Welcome to Patch Town. Patch Town tells the story of an abandoned child whose adult dream is to be reunited with his long lost adoptive mother. After years in a loving home, Jon was abandoned by his adoptive mother. He returns to live a sad life as a Patch Town Enterprise worker; a place where hundreds of cabbage babies are born every day. With each new birth, Jon laments the days when life was good and he was loved. Jon soon finds himself in a life or death struggle with the notorious Child Catcher. With his family by his side, they escape to find life he once had. Written by Anonymous
