Split Britches

Resident company

"More than any other group, Split Britches has set the stage of lesbian and feminist performance in the United states, during the past fifteen years. forming at the end of the founding decade of feminism, the 1970s, the troupe created a unique 'postmodern' style that served to embed feminist and lesbian issues of the times, economic debates, national agendas, personal relationships, and sex-radical role playing in spectacular and humorous deconstructions of canonical texts, vaudeville shtick, cabaret forms, lip-synching satire, lyrical love scenes, and dark, frightening explorations of class and gender violence..."
