Book Launch: The Only Way Home Is Through the Show: Performance Work of Lois Weaver

The Only Way Home Is Through the Show: Performance Work of Lois Weaver tells the stories of Lois Weaver: one of the pioneers of feminist and lesbian performance in North America, the UK and beyond.

Exploring her career, capturing its history, this important book documents the story of Weaver’s work by making visible the invisible. It reflects not only on the comparatively well-known work by Split Britches but also on Weaver’s solo projects, her performance interventions and her work as a facilitator and leader supporting democratic access to performance and discussion, and championing human rights.

The third title in the Intellect Live series, The Only Way Home Is Through the Show is a lavishly illustrated and expertly curated compendium of Weaver’s long and wonderful career so far.
