Since 1980, the groundbreaking feminist theater company Split Britches has transformed the landscape of queer performance with their vaudevillian, satirical gender-bending performances. In their own words, they create “new forms by exploiting old conventions.” They proudly declare their work is “personal, bordering on the private…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.”

Split Britches’ productions have gained them awards and accolades around the world—they recently received The Edwin Booth Award in recognition of their outstanding contribution to the New York City/American Theatre and Performance Community.

This week, in celebration of La Mama’s 50th Anniversary Season, the company’s founders, Peggy Shaw, Lois Weaver and Deb Margolin will be occupying La MaMa. La MaMa notes: 33 x 3 is a homecoming of sorts for Split Britches—for 33 of its 50 years, the 3 company members have been running alongside and sometimes with La Mama collaborating in trio, performing in duets, and flying solo.  

April 18 – 22 at La Mama (74A East 4th Street).
