A solo performance by Peggy Shaw, directed by Lois Weaver
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.
‘She makes us chuckle, then teases those chuckles into guffaws as she draws us under the skin of her very being, until suddenly you realise that you’re on the verge of unsuspected tears.’ – Herald, Scotland
‘an impressionistic monologue that’s engaging, admirably unsentimental and often very funny indeed.’– Charles Isherwood, New York Times
