Split Britches in Senior Planet

Raven Snook of Senior Planet takes a look at Split Britches' Unexploded Ordnances (UXO) currently in residence workshops on Governors Island prior to performances in The Downstairs @ La MaMa in October 2016.

"Buried potential became both the inspiration for and the focus of Weaver and Shaw’s latest endeavor, “Unexploded Ordnances (UXO),” a series of exploratory workshops with seniors that will provide material for a theatrical production. The term “buried,” Weaver says, refers more to “the fantasy of life as opposed to the lost opportunities of life.” It’s a subtle but important distinction: what you always wanted to do rather than what you didn’t do."
