"Double Agency" by Peggy Shaw and Lois Weaver is an evening in two acts: Miss Risqué and It's a Small House and We Lived in it Always. Peggy and Lois of Split Britches are back in New York with a new show. Over the years you have seen them together in Belle Reprieve, Lesbians Who Kill, Lust and Comfort and separately in Peggy's Menopausal Gentleman and Lois's Faith and Dancing. They are together again in Double Agency at La MaMa. Set in a turn-of-the-century Paris Music Hall, Miss Risqué, is a feast of female drag -the powdered and permed showgirl and the be-suited stage door johnny and undercover spy. It's a Small House and We Lived in it Always is a play in word, song and movement where lonesome lovers act out the tease and truculence of a sharing a house the size of a small stage. Their only hope is an audience!
"Having worked together for over twenty years, theirs is a stage partnership of a rare calibre - together they spark and fizz. Split Britches are political in their very existence, but eschew agit-prop to create theatre that is multi-faceted, funny and beautiful."
