A few weeks ago we sat down with Peggy Shaw and Lois Weaver to chat about about their upcoming show Ruff. Peggy Shaw has always had a host of crooners, lounge singers, movie stars, rock and roll bands, and eccentric family members living inside her. Ruff is a tribute to those who have kept Shaw company over the last 68 years, a lament for the absence of those who disappeared into the dark holes left behind by her recent stroke, and a celebration that her brain is able to fill the blank green screens with new insight.

“Truculent and funny, swaggering and sensitive, Shaw is extraordinary.”
The Times of London

“Shaw’s obsession with bones, with origins and what lies at our core is what drives a powerful hour of deeply personal probing… I sincerely urge you to spend an hour in the hands of a genius.”
Edinburgh Festival Magazine

“Exquisite… This is open-heart surgery of the artistic kind, performed without anaesthetic.”
The Guardian
