Secret Locations, Richmond, VA 23235

Broken Bone Bathtub is an immersive theatre project 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. All of our site-specific bathtub locations are secret, and the addresses will be revealed upon purchasing a ticket. Below are the neighborhoods of our upcoming performance locations.

Anne Poarch: Poetry Reading and Book Signing

04/06/2019 to 04/06/2019

Valiant Tea Co., 6913 Lakeside Ave, Richmond, VA 23228

From 4:00 to 5:00pm on Saturday, April 6th, author Anne Poarch is having a poetry reading and book signing for her book, “Flight.” In this slim volume of free verse poetry, author Anne Poarch examines her own complex experience of joy, grief, loss, and maturation through the vehicle of the four seasons and the motifs of butterflies, robins, and other aspects of nature. This collection of forty-eight free verse poems invites the reader to reflect upon the intersection between the spiritual and physical and the complex love between a parent and child. Bridging an out-of-doors childhood and the death of her father at age eleven, to a motherhood in which she longs to share all of nature with her young sons, Ms. Poarch’s words will surprise you and inspire you.
