public house ii

Old Vag Club

Publicity for the second production of the Old Vag Club’s public house

public house ii is an interactive play that uses excerpts from verbatim stories of sexual harassment, abuse, and assault to create an immersive theatre piece about the pervasive nature of sexual violence in our society.

Much of the play is devised during the rehearsal process, and 
actors are free to share their own experiences and include them in the play. We attempt to make this a collaborative and safe experience for everyone involved and many of the 30 or so contributors and actors who participated in the first production said they felt a sense of catharsis in sharing their experiences and having them be taken seriously.

Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,         Enwrought with golden and silver light,        The blue and the dim and the dark cloth        Of night and light and the half-light,        I would spread the cloths under your feet:        But I, being poor, have only my dreams;        I have spread my dreams under your feet;        Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.        Aedh Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven by W.B. Yeats, 1899
