Patricia Légaré Eddisford (she/her/hers) is a Montreal based actor, playwright and entrepreneur. Through her small production company she founded in 2014, Moon Escapees Productions – Les Évadés de la Lune, she develops, creates and produces shows. Young audiences know her as Lady Lost, the forgotten princess. Since 2016 she has been a regular of the Saturday Morning Kids Series at the Centaur Theatre Company.
Patricia also teaches the Michael Chekhov Technique. She received her teacher and actor certification at the Great Lakes Michael Chekhov Consortium (GLMCC) at Mount Union University in Ohio. Actors, directors, drama students and even playwrights attend her workshops to learn a range of tools that Michael Chekhov developed in order to spark their imagination through a psycho-physical approach.
The pandemic didn’t stop her and she created the Joyous Arts with Chekhovian friends. At first it was to maintain an artistic shape by doing cold readings and actor’s exercises but new playwrights started to show interest in the project. They were interested in having professional actors read their new work, to hear it and receive some constructive feedback. More than thirty actors and 5 playwrights from everywhere in North America are part of this evolving project.
Patricia truly believes that the secret to grow professionally is to share knowledge, to connect with as many individuals as possible and to be humble.
