Legendary lesbian feminist company Split Britches revisit over three decades of work in their production Retro(per)spective, a compact gem of a show that, rather than resting on the laurels of past achievement, illustrates just how vital and refreshing they remain.
“Chemistry and comic timing honed over decades is evident – they work beautifully together, effortlessly riffing off one another, two halves of a seamless whole.’ - Tracey Sinclair, Exeunt Magazine (Retro(per)spective, 2017)
Retro(per)spective is a medley of 30 years of Split Britches’ performances that made the politics of gender and sexuality and the humour of human relations accessible to all ages and persuasions. Performed by Peggy Shaw and Lois Weaver, Retro(per)spective provides a
humorous slant on love, life, work and play and features excerpts from old favourites such as Upwardly Mobile Home, Belle Reprieve, Lesbians Who Kill, Dress Suits to Hire and Anniversary Waltz as well as material from their newer shows, Lost Lounge and Miss America.
Both shows will have a post-show discussion.
AGE GUIDANCE: 16+
