Belle Reprieve (1990)

Collaborating with legendary gay/drag performers Bloolips, Shaw and Weaver take on Tennessee Williams’ “Streetcar Named Desire” and the mythic proportions of Stanley and Blanche. Both steamy and hysterical, Belle Reprieve looks at gay and lesbian sex in the 1940’s and both honors Williams and turns him on his head. Written and performed by Peggy Shaw and Lois Weaver of Split Britches and Bette Bourne and Paul Shaw of Bloolips.

Footage of the performance can be found here.
