Welcome to the Split Britches website.
This is the home of all Split Britches projects, past and present. Look through our archives for information on our past performances and projects. Our current projects are Unexploded Ordnances (UXO), Retro(per)spective, Care Cafe, The Long Table, and Tammy WhyNot.
Since then we have transformed the landscape of queer performance with our vaudevillian satirical gender-bending performance. Split Britches creates new forms by exploiting old conventions. It borrows from classical texts and popular myths, but its true sources are the details of everyday life. The work is personal, bordering on the private. It relies on moments rather than plot, relationships rather than story. It is about a community of outsiders, queers, eccentrics – feminist because it encourages the imaginative potential in everyone, and lesbian because it takes the presence of a lesbian on stage as a given.
