Impromptu Porch Sitting for the New Year

Please join us for a quiet, un-pressured evening of company and conversation this New Years Eve.

Come to an Impromptu Porch Sitting for the New Year.

A Porch Sitting is the newest of Lois Weaver’s experiments in public engagement that use familiar and familial settings to hold public conversations.

This Porch Sitting for the New Year is exactly what it sounds like. We will all sit quietly in chairs facing the horizon or reflect on all that has gone before or chat about what’s coming down the road or maybe even take a nap in safe company. It’s an Impromptu because we just got around to organizing it!

Oh yes and there will be time and space for some easy socializing and serious refreshments so please drop in for a minute or several hours and if you can, bring a beverage or snack to share.

All welcome!!

Big thanks to La Mama for always giving us a porch to sit on!

Happy New Year!

About Split Britches

Split Britches was founded 30 years ago by Peggy Shaw, Lois Weaver and Deb Margolin. Since 1980 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.
