As part of the Tucker-Boatwright Festival of Literature and the Arts, the Department of Theatre and Dance presents a residency and public performance by Split Britches Theatre Company.

Split Britches artists, Lois Weaver and Peggy Shaw, blend satirical, gender-bending performances to create new theatre forms by foregrounding and exploiting old conventions. They borrow from classical texts, popular myths, and the details of everyday life. The work is personal and profoundly political: it is about a community of outsiders, queers, eccentrics, and the imaginative potential in everyone. During their residency, Split Britches will create a new theatre piece to be performed in New York in January. They will also offer workshops for students and do a performance open to the public.

The performance is free and open to the public, but seating is limited. First come, first served.
