Broken Bone Bathtub




“The concept is preposterous. It shouldn’t work. It does. I don’t know how and I don’t know why, but it does, and I was in awe of it.”

If you’re particularly inspired, support Siobhan on patreon.

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.

To learn more about where this internationally adventurous show has been, and how you can book the show in your home, please head over to www.brokenbonebathtub.com 

We are currently IN EDITS for the Broken Bone Bathtub documentary, meaning that the show itself is available for private performances ONLY. If you’d like a show to take place in your home for a group of friends and loved ones in NYC (or the east coast) in early 2020, please get in touch.
