Retro(per)spective
By Split Britches

Written and Performed by Peggy Shaw and Lois Weaver

A Split Britches greatest hits album for those who remember the 1980s and a Split Britches primer for those who may have missed it!  Performed by Peggy Shaw and Lois Weaver, Retro(per)spective  provides a humorous slant on love, life, work and play, and features much-loved moments from old and new shows.

A Work In Progress

Unexploded Ordnances
By Split Britches

Written and Performed by Peggy Shaw and Lois Weaver

A new Split Britches project inspired by the unexploded Civil War ammunition buried in New York Harbor and the iconic Stanley Kubrick film, Dr. Strangelove.
Exploring performance, installation, and conversation, Lois Weaver and Peggy Shaw invite you to contribute to this developing intergenerational work around aging, unexplored desires and unexpressed tensions, and how we look forward in a world with an uncertain future.
