RUFF

Split Britches USA/UK

A Peggy Shaw solo perfromance. Directed by Lois Weaver.

Peggy Shaw had a stroke in January 2011.

The stroke was in her PONS, which rhymes with the Fonz, one of her many role models.

Since the stroke she’s realised she has never really performed solo. She has always had a host of lounge singers, movie stars, rock and roll bands and eccentric family members living inside her. RUFF is a tribute to those who have kept her company these 68 years, a lament for the absence of those who disappeared into the dark holes left behind by the stroke and a celebration that her brain is able to fill the blank green screens with new insights.
