A Broken Umbrella Theatre spent four months visiting retirement communities and community groups throughout the region, recording stories about participants’ relationships with the telephone, communication, and personal exchange. These stories inspired Exchange, a production that explores both New Haven’s history as the home of the first telephone switchboard and exchange and residents’ personal histories.
