Tammy WhyNot in the United Kingdom

THAT’S RIGHT… SHE’S BACK! The sensational Tammy WhyNot will be performing at various sites across the UK as part of the Wellcome Collection’s Institute of Sexology Season.

Tammy WhyNot is in town and she’s on a mission to ask all the difficult questions, talk to those who really know and find out the truth about sex, and all its associations, at midlife and beyond. Part performance, part chat show, What Tammy Needs to Know About Getting Old and Having Sex is being developed in collaboration with older people in Brighton, Manchester and London, drawing on their (very) personal stories and experiences. Whatever the media might suggest, sex is certainly not just for the young.

Upcoming performances of What Tammy Needs to Know About Getting Old and Having Sex:

Z-Arts, Manchester Friday 6 March 2015, 8:00PM
The Old Market Hove, Friday 13 March 2015, 8:00PM

Stay tuned for more dates and venues…

LONG TABLE at the Wellcome Collection

longtableLois Weaver will be hosting a Long Table on Thursday 26 March, from 7-9PM at the Wellcome Collection.

Conceived by Lois Weaver, the Long Table is an experimental open public forum that is a hybrid performance, installation, round-table discussion and dinner party designed to facilitate dialogue by gathering together people with common interests.

The Long Table is a dinner party structured by etiquette, where conversation is the only course. The project ingeniously combines theatricality and models for public engagement. It is at once a stylised appropriation and an open-ended, non-hierarchical format for participation. Both of these elements – theatrical craft and political commitment – are mutually supporting in this widely and internationally toured work. The (often-feminised) domestic realm here becomes a stage for public thought.

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.
