Performance artist Peggy Shaw ruminates on life before and after the stroke she had in 2011, delivering a freewheeling monologue with deadpan humour and arresting honesty.

 
'Admirably unsentimental and often very funny indeed.’

New York Times

 

'A powerful ode to vulnerability'

Diva Magazine

 

There are dark spots and blanks in Peggy's memory now. Yet in paying tribute to the family, friends and performers who have inspired and kept her company over the years, she reflects on what is lost and equally celebrates the space left behind for new insight.
