THIS EVENT HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED. The new times are at 2:00 and 7:00 p.m. on September 23, 2023.
A theater artist from Kentucky, Lisa Egan Woods performs in her play, Thread and Bone, on Saturday, September 23 at 2:00 and 7:00 p.m. Both performances take place at the St. Augustine Waterworks.
The play, described as a memoir and eulogy, uses a dressmaking project as a way for the artist to reflect on her life and on the death of her sister. During the play, Lisa tears a dress apart and restitches it, while sharing her grief and discussing her own heart condition and surgery. The play focuses on the ways grief and memory work to re-make each of us and it celebrates family while providing both an honest and funny take on life and dress-making.
This play was performed at both the 2023 Cincinnati Fringe Festival and the 2018 Chicago Fringe Festival and received high praise at both events.

The St. Augustine Waterworks is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and was built in 1898 to be a waterworks for the city. When a growing population necessitated the move to a new location, the building served time as a community center and theater and was later left unused. Now fully renovated again, this facility is accessible and has free parking, yet retains its historic architectural properties and charm.
