Split Britches in Leeds


We're coming to Leeds! 

We're bringing our 'greatest hits' medley to Live Art Bistro on Thursday 29th November! 

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.

"As difficult as it must be to look back and see you have travelled most of your road, these two find humour, art and pathos in creating the next moment of their story together. In this way the work is deeper than a simple nostalgia or ‘medley of extracts’. It’s a stratification of various stages of their creative evolution."  - DRAFF Magazine - full review here.
