Skirball presents Unexploded Ordinances on Friday, February 17 and Sunday, February 18. Split Britches, the pioneering feminist theater company cofounded by Lois Weaver and Peggy Shaw, visit the Skirball to develop their new in-progress project, Unexploded Ordnances (UXO), slated to premiere in January 2018.

Inspired by the unexploded Civil War ammunition buried in New York Harbor, Stanley Kubrick’s Dr. Strangelove, and interviews with elder women, UXO invites the audience into “The Situation Room” to contribute to this intergenerational work about aging, unexplored desires, and looking forward to an uncertain future. Development of UXO to date has been supported by the London’s Barbican Centre and La MaMa Theatre in New York City.
