August 19 - September 11th, 2016
Broken Bone Bathtub is an immersive theatre performance taking place inside a bathtub, in an actual home. After a serious bike accident, a young woman musters up the courage to ask for help, and shares her story, exploring themes of trauma, suffering, human generosity and connection. The audience takes on the role of Siobhan’s close friends; not only listening but sharing in their experiences, and assisting the cast-clad artist in the actual ritual of taking a bath.
Written and performed by Siobhan O'Loughlin, this special Submersive edition will include additional environmental design by artist Amanda Burnham. All visitors will also enjoy soap samples from local entrepreneurs, Mt. Royal Soap Company, and custom beer from a local microbrewer.
