Performance Work of Lois Weaver
eds. Jen Harvie and Lois Weaver
A guided tour of Lois Weaver’s aesthetics, principles, inspirations, innovations, and desires. It tells her story through hundreds of professional and personal photos and an extraordinary range of texts, from performance writing to critical commentary – all embellished with performance ephemera, personal memoir, and hand-written notes on methodologies.
ed. Sue-Ellen Case
This book brings together a collection of the troupe's theatre writing. Edited and with an introduction and critical history by Professor Sue-Ellen Case, it includes seven of Split Britches' best-loved performance texts, most published here for the first time, with accompanying programme notes and fifteen black-and-white photographs.

A Menopausal Gentleman:
The Solo Performances of Peggy Shaw
ed. Jill Dolan
This collection of Shaw's solo performance scripts evokes a 54-year-old grandmother who looks like a 35-year-old man (in her classic "Menopausal Gentleman"); a mother's ambivalent ministrations to a daughter she treated like a son (in the raw "You're Just Like My Father"); Shaw's love for her biracial grandson, for whom she models masculinity (in the musically punctuated "To My Chagrin"); and a mapping of her body's long, bittersweet history (in the lyrical "Must: The Inside Story," a collaboration with the UK's Clod Ensemble).
